The LG Wine will come with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, sporting a 3.2-inch 480x320 display. A quad-core 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 210 chipset will be running the smartphone along with 1GB of RAM. The device also has 4GB internal memory which is expandable via microSD slot.

A 3MP primary and a front VGA camera is also present. A 1,700mAh battery provides a day of battery life on normal moderate usage. In terms of connectivity, the phone comes with LTE support, though LTE bands haven't been confirmed yet.

And while LG isn't attempting to resurrect the form factor with its new handset, the LG Wine, it is trying to offer consumers more choice and the chance to make a more individualistic technological statement.

It won't win any photography awards but the flip phone does offer some benefits over its smarter brethren -- it has a proper keypad for fewer typos and faster messaging and because its buttons are covered by the screen when not in use, pocket calls are practically impossible.
