LG Enact, LG Exalt, Kyocera Hydro Elite and Samsung Convoy 3 to arrive at Verizon by September 15
Yeah, we know - not the most exciting stuff ever, especially the Samsung Convoy 3, which is going to be a rugged clamshell featurephone. A gallery of Convoy 3 images has already leaked, so if you're interested, you can check it out right here.
And that's enough about the Convoy 3, because we've just run out of words when it comes to that industry-rocking featurephone. This is probably the best moment to get the LG Exalt out of the way, too, as we've already spotted this guy in a previous leak, and it's going to be nothing more than a basic flip phone with supposedly very good sound quality during calls.
So, let's shift gears and take a look at the more exciting LG Enact! Sporting a 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard and 4G LTE connectivity as its key features, this otherwise mid-range Android smartphone will join the few remaining representatives of this dying breed of QWERTY-enabled handhelds. By the looks of it, apart from its physical keyboard, the LG Enact isn't going to wow us with anything. It'll have an Optimus UI software customization, QSlide 2.0 multitasking capabilities (see our Optimus G Pro review for more details about this), as well as the Quality Communicator feature, which will allow you to "type and share information quickly without launching any apps." Yay!
Finally, there's the Kyocera Hydro Elite, which is shaping up to be a decent rugged Android smartphone of the mid-range kind. Not much is know about this product yet, but it'll most probably be capable of utilizing Verizon's super-fast LTE network.
While our tipster doesn't provide us with exact release dates for these handsets, they do claim that the LG Enact, LG Exalt, Kyocera Hydro Elite and the Samsung Convoy 3 are all going to pop up on Verizon store shelves by September 15.
Thanks for the tip!

The LG Enact sounds like a slightly revised version of the LG Mach.

Yes, god forbid they announce anything desirable like the One or G2. But that might make someone hold off on buying their current selections.
