LG Forgets What Year It Is – Announces A Flip Phone

It is the summer of 2005 and LG Electronics have announced their new Flip phone The Gentle. Only it is 2015 and everything I wrote in my last sentence applies.

This clam-shelled device is launching in two colors Blue and Burgundy. It packs a 3.5 inch touchscreen when opened along with a 1.1GHz quad-core processor and 3-megapixel rear-facing camera. It will also be running Android 5.1.1 out of the box. Full spec listing is below.
