This stylish compact phone rests snugly in the hand and slips nicely into the pocket. The conveniently small size of the phone is made possible by a unique hinge, which pivots on two independent axes to further extend the length of the phone. These two axes are connected by a gear inside the hinge, linking the upper to the lower part of the phone. When the user opens the phone, the hinge gear automatically extends the phone’s length. The subtle graphic of a traditional Korean cloud on the front face of the phone adds to its stylish look.
