The LG Enact For Verizon Shows The QWERTY Slider Isn’t Dead

While all eyes may be on the G2 when it comes to LG, the company isn’t just relying on its flagship handset. A new leaked image of the LG Enact, a QWERTY slider Android handset was recently spotted, and it’s headed Verizon.

QWERTY keyboards on Android phones used to be plentiful, with essentially all of the top Android manufacturers offering such a device. Now Android handsets with  QWERTY keyboards are quite the rarity these days, so it’s nice to see LG not forgetting about this type of handset.

While we’re more than happy to see an Android device ship with a QWERTY keyboard, the LG Enact doesn’t look to be the high-end handset we had hoped for. Other than the five row keyboard, you’ll see that the Enact has four capacitive buttons instead of on-screen navigation buttons. That said, the screen itself looks a bit small, so it might have been a good decision to keep the buttons off of the screen.

The LG Enact looks to rock a 4-inch WVGA display and 5 megapixel camera, firmly planting it in the low/mid range market. No details about the processor, storage, or RAM have been reported yet. Luckily, it looks like the Enact is just days away from an official announcement on Verizon.
