The Latest Flip Phones 2014 In Pictures
Here are the latest flip phones (also known as clamshell phones) in a photo gallery. Flip phones have been eclipsed by the introduction of smartphones, but they still exist, mostly as dumb phones, in 2014. They help you avoid unwanted calls since the keypad is concealed under the flip cover and they make it easier to answer an incoming call, simply by lifting the flip cover. Ending a call with a flip phone is equally easy: Just close the cover. However, clamshell phones are sometimes slightly thicker than slider or bar phones, but recent models tend to be thinner.

First Phone: The LG Envoy III
The LG Envoy III
The third installment in LG's basic flip phone Envoy series comes with both a Menu Readout option (audio readouts at customizable speech rates) and a Hearing Assist mode (sound enhancement for calling). It also comes with the signature dual displays, the main one being a 2.2-inch TFT screen and the other one being an external panel at roughly an inch. The Envoy III sports a 1.3-megapixel camera and comes with support for basic Bluetooth profiles (v2.1) as well as mobile web via the WAP 2.0 browser. Standard features like a speakerphone mode and USB charging are also intact.
