Previously announced retro LG Gentle to launch internationally as the LG Wine Smart.

South Korean manufacturer LG has confirmed that the LG Gentle announced late last month will be making its way to Europe and a few other regions as early as later this month. Specifically, France, Italy, Kazakhstan, Japan, Poland, Spain, and the UK will be receiving the smartphone first. Prices will be announced at a later date for the respective markets.

The LG Gentle is an Android-powered flip phone and will be renamed to the LG Wine Smart to better fit a wider number of regions. It combines the advantages of the folding mechanism with large keypads and the touchscreen of modern smartphones. Its numerical 3x4 keypad is complemented with hotkeys for instant access to address books, text messages, and the rear camera. The manufacturer decided to launch the flip phone outside of South Korea due to the positive response to the former Wine model last year.

The quick specifications are available below. In short, this is a flip phone with the radios and software that users have come to expect from all of today's smartphones.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
