LG has just announced a new Android smartphone called the LG AKA that's being designed for people, specifically the people in its home country of South Korea, who want a little more personality in their device. The AKA will have up to four different virtual "characters" to choose from.

The 5-inch smartphone comes with a case that covers three quarters of the device's front side. The remaining quarter is reserved for showing off virtual eyes that represent the four characters: yellow Eggy, white Wooky, blue Soul and red YoYo. All of these characters have their own personalities and back stories, and LG hopes this aspect of the AKA will help it connect more with their owners.

The hardware specs of the LG AKA are decidedly in the mid-range, however. It runs Android KitKat on a 1.2 GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an eight megapixel rear camera and a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera. The phone is only scheduled to be released in South Korea at a price of 500,000 Korean won, or about $460.

While of the four characters that can be chosen for the LG AKA is your favorite?
