Yes, you read that right, QWERTY sliders aren’t ready to fade into being remnants of a time long past just yet, something LG is aiming to prove with the Enact for Verizon.

lg enact verizon LG Enact for Verizon rekindles memories of QWERTY sliders

Godfather of leaksters evleaks is at it again, this time revealing the LG Enact, a smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard that is only “days away” from being announced for Verizon (August 29th, according to the carrier’s leaked road map). Since it’s a slider form factor, smartphone keyboard addicts will be able to enjoy the merits of both a dedicated physical keyboard and a full 4-inch touchscreen display (unlike devices like the BlackBerry Q10).

Earlier rumors pit the LG Enact squarely in the lower mid-range segment, with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 305 GPU, a 5-megapixel camera (reaffirmed by evleaks), and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean (with what look like stock Android’s navigation buttons, but those are probably capacitive). As such, only those looking for a smartphone with a full physical keyboard will find something to really like here.

Details on pricing are unavailable, but expect the LG Enact to be somewhere around $50 on contract and replace the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II. Any of you getting one?
