LG's unique AKA smartphone will be launched outside of Korea
In November last year, LG released a unique Android smartphone called AKA: a handset that comes with special cases, and a special interface that can have its own personality. The AKA was launched in South Korea, and we thought that LG wouldn't sell it anywhere else. Surprisingly, though, later this month the AKA will be officially released in Taiwan.

LG will target the AKA at young smartphone users, asking about $310 for it. When the handset is used together with one of it special cases, animated eyes show up in the upper part of the screen. These don't just add personality to the device, but also provide info like battery status, and notifications.

Specs-wise, the LG AKA is a mid-range handset. It's got a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, an 8 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, 2 MP front-facing camera, and LTE connectivity. The smartphone is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, also offering 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, and a 2610 mAh battery. You can check out our LG AKA hands-on for a closer look at the device.

It's not clear if LG is planning to launch the AKA in more markets, but we'll let you know when we hear more about this.
