The LG Ice Cream Smart appears to be a future clamshell Android smartphone
Last year, LG launched the Wine Smart, its very first clamshell smartphone (running Android 4.4 KitKat). Now, the company is seemingly getting ready to introduce another clamshell that's based on Android.

@upleaks revealed an image that shows a flip phone reportedly called LG Ice Cream Smart. Most probably, the handset has this name because it's the spiritual successor to the LG Ice Cream KF350 clamshell that was released way back ion 2008 (obviously, this one wasn't a smartphone).

We don't expect the LG Ice Cream Smart to have drool-worthy features. It's quite possible that the handset's specs sheet is more or less similar to that of the Wine Smart, including a 3.5-inch display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 (or 410) processor, 1 GB of RAM, and an 8 MP rear camera. Nevertheless, in a world that's almost devoid of clamshell smartphones, the LG Ice Cream Smart is a notable device.

There's no word on when LG will announce the Ice Cream Smart. However, it must be mentioned that those who may be interested in getting the handset will likely not be able to find it outside of South Korea, LG's home country.

Samsung did it and look at LG joining the bandwagon. This is just... sad.

Because there are consumers who want clamshell smartphones? There's nothing sad about making a product for the people who want it. Also, LG joined the bandwagon last year, you're late bro.

Talking about this one? Because little do you know this has been in existence for some time now.

Pretty sure the sales figures aren't that great. But hey whatever floats peoples' boats.

It should be for those people who want such phones. And a design and spec. refresh is great. What say?

So, with that logic, everyone ripped off the Moto StatTac...including Samsung.

Moving on...

I like small screen androids, but the keypad of this one is so ugly. Does it have a 4:3 touch screen? I assume this is a super cheap (inexpensive) smartphone.

Could have at least put a full-qwerty keyboard the way BlackBerry did with the Style a few years ago. That was a nice, compact phone.

I would love to see a decent clamshell smartphone. It's the only form factor that's butt dial proof.

Maybe we should make a clamshell football and give it to Mark Sanchez. It will be butt-fumble proof.

Sharp Aquos K>LG Ice Cream Smart in terms of looks.
