Verizon is at it again and this time with LG Enact as a QWERTY slider smartphone, yes, a slider smartphone. This may be a coincidence of some sorts, since about the same time last year Verizon Wireless launched Pantech Marauder 4G LTE Android smartphone that’s quite similar in looks with the yet to be announced LG Enact leaked in the image above. Right from the available features which include a very rare four-key capacitive button layout and a Full QWERTY keyboard.
Jumping right into the specs, the LG Enact is expected to bag itself a 4-inch WVGA display with a resolution of 800×480, 5MP camera, 4G LTE, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor accompanied by an Adreno 305 GPU, and Android 4.1.2. So far little has been disclosed on the connectivity aspect but what we hope is that there is a little secret or two behind the QWERTY keyboard.
The old QWERTY slider keyboard and a four-key capacitive button layout is what some of us may have had considered “extinct” as far as the smartphone technology is concerned, and it’s quite a big bargain for Verizon to jump into this ship if you ask me. With the smartphone industry leaning towards the Phablets all is left is the launch that may just shed the light that will bring the sense to the unprecedented move. Apart from that, it’s not so much of a wonder that more classic looks are finding their way back into the Android market as earlier seen with the clamshell phones earlier this month. Well, let’s watch and see how they perform in the market.
