LG AKA.smartphone

LG just came up with the craziest yet cutest invention of all time!

Introducing LG AKA (pronounce as Aw-Kuh) – a smartphone with an attitude which comes in four different colours and each colour represents different types of personalities!

So, what do I mean by that? Each of these smartphones apparently has its own, colours, characters, names and back stories (how cool is that?).

Also, another cool part is that these smartphones have their very own set of eyes (corresponding to their personas) peeking out of its case blinking and looking at you (try not to get nightmares though)!


Here are the personalities and back stories of each phone as according to CNET:-

  • Eggy (yellow) – a romantic phone that falls in love easily
  • Wooky (white) – despite its cute appearance, this phone is a badass that speaks in slang
  • Soul (dark blue) – a phone that loves to drink (beer) and enjoys music
  • YoYo (pink) – the only female of the pack who loves hamburgers and Cokes which causes her weight to “yo-yo” (now you know where she got her name from).

The phones are kind of similar to the Japanese digital pet, Tamagotchi because the phones are able to interact with its users. The expressions of the phones (to be specific, eyes) change as you wave or shake them.


Also, instead of feeding (like in Tamagotchi), these phones are nurtured through gaming, where you use the characters to fight alien invasion and learn more about the back stories of each character.

If you are bored with the current personality of your AKA, you can change them to another personality by purchasing their phone case (each case has a chip embedded in the back cover which will change the phone’s eyes and personality immediately).


The phone is 5 inches tall with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. It has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage with a micro SD card slot, and a 2,610 mAh battery.

Unfortunately, the phone is only available in Korea for now and there are no news as to whether it will be sold internationally although it is expected!
