The Verizon LG Enact is arriving on August 22, expanding Big Red’s entry-level or mid-range Android smartphone offerings. This is a device that appeared in one of @evleaks’ posts last month. Such post included a photo of the device as well as some possible specifications. The same smartphone was spotted on Verizon’s August roadmap, as well, along with other devices such as the Motorola DROID Mini, Samsung Convoy 2, Kyocera Hydro Elite, and the LG Exalt. The LG Exalt, a feature phone with a clamshell form factor, will supposedly be launched on August 22 like the LG Enact.
The newest information about the Verizon LG Enact is from an announcement from the wireless carrier that was sent by a tipster to Phonearena. The announcement indicates several of the features of the upcoming device. Possibly the most noteworthy is its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and shortcut keys. The LG Enact also sports physical Android function keys below its display.
