LG AKA: a smartphone with four different personalities

LG Electronics has officially unveiled in South Korea the LG AKA – an Android smartphone with a 5-inch HD display that features four different personalities.

The LG AKA is a mid-range device with a decent set of hardware. What sets it apart though is that it features four different personalities that appear when you put the phone inside its special case: Uki (White), Egi (Yellow), Soul (Blue), Yo (Pink). Users can then interact with these phone personalities in different ways. Watch the video below.

    I’m literally still wondering why they sell these kind of phones at such a high price for innovation that does not justify its price? I would honestly never buy a device with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU paired with 1.5GB RAM because it has cool “innovations” when placed inside a case.

      In order to produce innovations one has to spend on Research and Development. Even premium phones (like iphone which may seem to have no recent innovation) has to spend on R and D just to give it a slimmer profile.

  6. alangkwenta says:

    di ko ma gets ang video
    pati ang concept nito

    pag sinabing personality diba parang state of mind yan?
    like tinotopak ka,o masungit ka?

    “pleasing personality” ang hanap pag nag apply trabaho

    pero yung “eggy” dyan parang may topak

    A.I. ba yan?

    eh tinotopak na nga minsan fon natin, nag hahahang, not responding, tapos dagdag mo pa yan

    alang kwenta…. mahal pa

    Wait until jan 2015 android L future proof phone google Ara.
    Baduy nmn nyan may “widget” lng na upsize na ung price. Tapos itatapon din lng yan after 3 years bili nlng kayo ng Google Ara, swappable modules at upgradable, dapat ma crush na ang market ng Sheeple Premade phones, have ypu ever wondered how many forest and mountains were buldozed for producing millions of these phones? fail generation tapos after anotjer year hindi na upgradable to android 6 bibili nanaman, not all soft devs are willing to give updates to OS except google nexus gen coz its too painful to assure system stability, kya mgpproduce nlng ng bago na unit to “meet the annual market sales” “annual garbage phone” “forest, nature, turned to garbage”
