Not everyone loves the touchscreen design that’s been dominating the market for years already, which is why device manufacturers release a smartphone with a different design from time to time. That said, the LG Gentle has been announced to offer an Android experience on a flip phone form factor.

Why Android? While a less sophisticated platform would be enough for a flip phone, Android gives it more capabilities. It won’t do much though, because the LG Gentle is only an entry-level phone. It offers a 3.2-inch LCD touch display, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of built-in storage (with microSD expansion). The main camera won’t produce great photos with its 3-megapixel sensor. A lowly 1.1GHz quad-core processor runs under the hood, but at least the LG Gentle has LTE connectivity.
