LG is no stranger to releasing some weird devices. This Korean company had its fair share of odd handsets, but the one they just released tops all of them. LG has showcased LG AKA during this year’s World IT Show 2014 which was held in Busan, Korea last month and now the company has officially announced this handset, or should I say handsets. LG AKA is a goofy device which can show emotions and has a set of eyes located on the upper side of the device. This handset comes in 4 colors which have different personalities, Eggy, Wooky, YoYo and Soul. The yellow handset, Eggy, falls in love easily. Wooky is the white handset and he’s basically a bully. YoYo is the pink one and she just loves hamburgers and Coca Cola while Soul (the blue one) loves music and beer. Most of the screen real estate is covered up on these handsets, the only part that is not covered up is the screen on the top where those eyes are located. Sounds crazy? Well, it’s goofy, weird and… well, yeah, a bit crazy. This is definitely the weirdest smartphone I’ve ever seen.

Anyhow, let’s check LG AKA’s specifications. All of these 4 handset sport the same specifications, LG AKA features a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) IPS LCD display along with 1.5GB of RAM for your multitasking needs and 16GB of expandable internal storage. These handsets are powered by an unnamed 1.2GHz quad-core processor and ship with Android 4.4 KitKat with LG’s UI on top of it. On the back of these phones, you can find an 8-megapixel camera while there’s a 2.1-megapixel shooter located up front. 2,610mAh battery comes with these devices and it is removable. As far as dimensions go, we’re looking at a 138.7 x 71.9 x 9.9mm and the they weight 157 grams. The usual array of sensors are present here as well as and this is a 4G LTE capable device. LG AKA has launched in Korea for 500,000 Korean won, which is about $460.
