As expected, LG’s hitting Verizon Wireless with new-generation handsets, and they’re hitting hard. Verizon Wireless has just announced three new LG handsets for this year. The LG Glance will apparently arrive on Big Red as an affordable monoblock (candybar) sporting a slim waistline, with the LG enV3 picking up where the LG enV2 left off. And, on the higher end of the spectrum, we have the LG enV Touch doing its touchscreen thing as the successor to the LG Voyager.
The super-slim LG Glance features a 1.3-megapixel camera and some sort of fancy “woven metal” battery cover. The name of the game here is “affordability.” The LG enV3 improves on the enV2’s spec-sheet with a 3-megapixel camera, EVDO and Visual Voicemail. Like the original, the LG enV3 features a smaller display and numeric keypad on its exterior face, with a larger display and QWERTY keyboard lying underneath the sideways clamshell. The LG enV3 can expand storage with a microSD card. And, finally, the LG enV Touch turns up the “cool” factor a couple notches with not just one, but two WVGA displays. Like its predecessor, the LG Voyager, the enV Touch features a touchscreen on its exterior face, opening up to reveal a WVGA display and QWERTY keyboard. LG rounds out the enV Touch’s feature set with a 3.2-megapixel auto-focus camera, microSD card slot, image editor and 3.5mm headphone jack.
Expect to see the LG Glance and LG enV Touch launching on June 5 for $49.99 and $149.99, respectively (after applicable mail-in rebates are applied). The LG enV3 will set you back $129.99 starting tomorrow (rebates apply). All prices are only valid when purchased with new 2-year contract.
