LG Mystery Dual-Screen Handset Uncovered In The Wild

Sometimes there are phones just hanging out in the wild right in front of our faces and we don’t know anything about them. Mr. Blurrycam isn’t anywhere near these images taken front and center at a party organized by Orange in the UK. The folks from Kineto Wireless were on hand at the party and you might them as the creators of the Wi-Fi calling app on Android. They brought this unknown LG device to the party along with a handful of unseen others. According to the folks at Pocket-lint the LG rep dropped the name “Flip II” which just so happens to appear on the T-Mobile 2011 roadmap that leaked back in May.

The possibility also exists that we are looking at the LG Maxx Q, another name that appeared on the leaked roadmap. We’re questioning that Android 1.6 wallpaper which begs the question, is this just a older prototype that never made it to store shelves? Hopefully we’ll find out soon as that smaller second screen is very very intriguing.

        It’s back up to $599 out the door (with an additional 200 “rebate”). They had a 399 web promo going where they would knock the 200 off automatically, but alas …

    Of all the crazy concepts I’ve seen like this (Samsung Continuum, Kyocera Echo) I could see this one doing pretty decent for a messaging phone(I’m not sure I’ll ever see those two phones in person).  Even better than the upcoming Samsung Gravity Smart.

    Damn that is ugly. Reminds me of my Nokia 6800 back in the day.

    The phone is running at least Froyo. It is rare to see the default wallpaper in Android handsets, but that wallpaper is still included in stock Android 2.3. Since it is skinned, we can’t tell if it is Froyo or Gingerbread, but we do know it is at least Froyo because of the Search widget, which is the widget introduced in Froyo.

      The messaging and clock app icons match Gingerbread.

        We can’t be certain because LG skinned the app icons. Notice that they are glossy and glassy looking. The stock images are not like that. We can, however, assume it has at least Froyo because of the Search widget. It probably does have Android 2.3 anyway, but it is pretty safe to assume Android 2.2.

    How about LG devoting some effort toward fixing the numerous problems of the G2x instead of coming up with a retarded design like this?

    • Nate

      That device has likely been in development for years. Please think prior to making asanine comments. Posted from my rooted, rommed and overclocked g2x.

    Nintendo is not going to be happy about this.  And neither will I when my 8 year old takes my phone to the playground instead of his DS
