LG's popular Korean phone, the Shine, has not only been updated already, there's now two new versions planned for an eventual release. The first, a gold-dipped hedonistic version, should ship for Korea's CDMA networks first before (possibly) heading everywhere else with a GSM version.

The second, a flip-phone version of the Shine, looks to be in production sometime soon as well. Too bad for us, there's still no word on when any of these Shine editions—Au or not—will make its way to the states.

Update: The flip version seems to be headed to Verizon in July. Thanks MacVicta!
