LG Enact now available from Verizon, complete with QWERTY keyboard and $19.99 price tagAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Turns out that the LG Enact was indeed close to arriving on Verizon's shelves when we laid eyes upon that leaked render yesterday. Verizon is now selling the LG Enact on its website for $19.99 with a two-year contract or $349.99 without a commitment. Here's what LG Enact buyers will get after handing their hard-earned cash to a friendly neighborhood Verizon sales rep:
- 4-inch 800x480 touchscreen
- Slide-out five-row physical keyboard
- 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8930 processor
- 5-megapixel rear, VGA front cameras
- 8GB storage, microSD card slot for additional space
- Mobile Hotspot support for 10 Wi-Fi devices on 4G LTE or 5 devices on 3G
- Verizon 4G LTE connectivity
- 2,460mAh battery
- Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with LG's custom user interface
Obviously one of the Enact's most notable features is its hardware QWERTY keyboard, which is becoming not only an increasingly rare sight on Android phones, but also the smartphone world in general. Touchscreens have gotten larger in recent years and software keyboards have improved, but some folks still prefer the feel of real keys beneath their thumbs, and it's good to see LG and Verizon giving those consumers a new toy. The LG Enact could also be attractive to anyone that wants a small-ish smartphone thanks to its 4-inch display.
