In October 2014, LG unveiled an AKA smartphone, the hull of which leaves part of the touch screen visible. Thanks to a pair of eyes which gives it a more human side, the device can then tell its owner that something is going on (receiving an SMS or close to an appointment) or that something is wrong (battery will soon be empty).
One time stayed at home, on the Korean market, the AKA smartphone ended up being advertised elsewhere. In mid-March, LG indeed indicated a launch in Taiwan. But the manufacturer apparently sees further for this original model. He is now talking about China, Singapore and Turkey, but also other markets thereafter. France, perhaps? Wait & See.

Under Android KitKat (and why not Android Lollipop, knowing that the mid-range is entitled to it at LG), the AKA smartphone offers a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB RAM, a 5 inch 720p screen , 4G / LTE support, 2 and 8 Megapixel photo sensors and 16 GB flash memory for the equivalent of 300 euros.
