LG has launched a new entry level smartphone called LG Folder 2, successor to the first LG folder phone launched back in 2018.
The Folder phone features a 2.8-inch QVGA screen when you flip open and there is also a 0.9-inch mono screen on the front to quickly view notifications such as text messages, calls, time, battery life and signal status.
The LG Folder 2 has 107.9 x 55 x 18mm dimensions when closed and it weighs 127 grams. The backside of the LG Folder 2 has a 2-megapixel rear camera. Alongside it, there is an SOS key which when pressed three times in 1.5 seconds can dial a pre-registered phone number and send an emergency SMS with location information.
The device is equipped with T9 keypad with a hot key for accessing AI voice service or recording function. For avoiding unintentional data charge, it comes with data security feature.
