LG has announced Folder 2, the company’s latest Android flip phone and the successor of the first Folder that was introduced back in 2018. It has 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 phone also has T9 keypad along with SOS Key on the back that lets you call a preregistered number by pressing three times quickly within 1.5 seconds. At the same time, the location information will be sent by text.
If you press the hotkey button above the call button, AI voice service or recording function can be accessed depending on the carrier. The AI voice service recognizes and answers the voice when the user presses the hotkey button and asks questions for weather, date, time, simple calculation, etc.
It is also equipped with a data security lock function, which prevents unintentional data charge. The LG Folder 2 weighs 127g, which is lighter than the previous LG folder (130g), says the company. It has a 2-megapixel camera and will likely run Android, but the company doesn’t reveal any details about the version.
