LG intros AKA, a pretty crazy smartphone that has facial expressions
posted by Florin T. / Nov 10, 2014, 10:15 PM
The cases have two parts, with the front one partially covering the display, allowing the four characters to literally show their animated eyes. The eyes are more than simple animations, as they can provide info including notifications and battery status.
Specs-wise, the LG AKA offers a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, LTE, NFC, 8 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, 2 MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (unknown maker), 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable memory. The handset comes with a 2610 mAh battery, weighs 135.5 grams without the front cover, and 157 grams with it on.
It looks like the LG AKA is available starting today in South Korea, via all three carriers, running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. However, there’s no word on how much the smartphone costs. Also, in case you’re wondering, LG will most likely not release the AKA in other markets. Anyhow, you can check out the handset in the promo video embedded below (in Korean).

I think they really understand kids, and making the device into a living object with those eyes, with paintable covers, is brilliant. As a parent, I would prefer if the device was protected by a silicon cover, based on my experience of how phones are treated by kids.
