With every new iPhone release, it seems the chance of a flip phone resurgence gets more and more remote. (Even flip phone devotee Lindsey Graham recently abandoned his beloved device for a smartphone.) Surprisingly, the tech-relics are still huge in Asia, and LG intends to capitalize on this interest with Gentle, a new flip phone that runs on Android's 5.1 Lollipop.

This new technology is packed into a tiny 3.2 inch screen, with 4GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. The modest phone may only have a 3-megapixel camera, but it comes at a great price. For just 20 million won ($175), the faux-leather covered phone can be all yours. If you live in South Korea, that is. 

Will flip phones make a comeback over here in the West? Crazier things have happened.
