LG launches Enact, a budget slider QWERTY phone

It seems that Samsung ain’t the only one going retro as LG also unveiled the Enact, taking a potshot at Samsung’s recently announced clamshell, dual-display smartphones in the process.

Rather than going for a similar design scheme as the Golden and Hennessy, the LG decided to use a slide-out chassis for their new Android handset which was also once a crowd-pleaser back in the day.

Sitting above these smartphones’ full-sized QWERTY keypad is a 4-inch WVGA screen which is accompanied by a quartet of soft buttons for Android navigation. The handset runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, has LTE support and features a pair of cameras (5MP on the back and VGA on the front).

Taking up a good portion of the LG Enact’s 8GB expandable storage is Android Jellybean 4.1.2, as well as a handful of pre-bundled apps from the South Korean firm. All of its component will be powered by sizeable battery pack which is rated at 2,460mAh.

The LG Enact’s, as well as its clamshell counterpart, Exalt, is headed towards Verizon and is priced at USD19.99 and USD79.99 with a two-year contract respectively.

    Pangit yan for sure flex cable problems. Di na sila dapat naglalabas ng ganyan masyado ng lumang klase ang ganyan. And it just makes the handset bulky.
