Sprint today announced the upcoming availability of the LG Mach, a midrange device set to launch on its burgeoning 4G LTE network later this year. While the LG Mach will be one of many smartphones available on Sprint's LTE network, it will be one of the few to features a slide-out QWERTY. Like the Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE, the LG Mach has a landscape keyboard. The addition of physical keys brings the phone to a thickness measuring 12.19mm (0.48in).
The LG Mach has a 4-inch screen with WVGA resolution (480x800), a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 5 megapixel rear cmera, a VGA front-facing camera, and a 1,700 mAh battery. The phone has 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that supports up to 32GB of additional storage. It also meets ULE Platinum certification for having the highest level of environmental sustainability and eco-friendliness.
Elements of LG's Optimus UX software - including features like QuickMemo, which creates annotated screen shots, and the Time Catch Shot feature that lets users combine multiple snapshots to create the best possible photo - appear in the LG Mach. The software is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features Sprint ID packs that have personalized apps and feature packs to match a user's possible interests.
Sprint did not release any information related to the LG Mach's price or date of availability.source: Sprint
