This surely isn’t going to hit every market around, but LG has announced this crazy smartphone in South Korea, with the name AKA, and the smartphone is targeted towards young individuals. The phone comes with four unique cases, and these transform into different characters.
The four cases coming along, include Eggy (yellow case), Wookie (white case), Soul (blue case) and YoYo (pink case). These look like any standard phone case from the back, but on the front, the case extends only up to the half from bottom, and the interesting part is that transparent area on the screen where the four characters show the animated eye, and it doesn’t end there because there are notifications and battery status shown in the same area.
The LG AKA will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat and there is a 5-inch IPS LCD display with HD resolution on the top, while a quad-core processor clocking at 1.2 GHz powers the smartphone, with 1.5GB RAM. There is a 8-megapixel camera on the back, 2-megapixel one on the front, and the AKA has a 2610 mAh battery, with 16GB internal storage.
There are buttons on the back as LG tries to maintain the same design the recent LG flagship smartphones have, and thus the camera and flash light are on the either side of the buttons. The cases come in different colors, and based on the actions, the expressions on the screen area changes, i.e. if you are listening to music with headphones, there are headphones shown above the eyes when the case is worn.
Looks interesting, and the intro video shows quite a lot that one can do on the LG AKA with those cases, but that surely isn’t going to appeal to every type of user. The AKA is available from today through the three carriers in South Korea, and there is no word about the pricing of the device, and availability in any other market.
