LG's New Blade Laptops Continue The Thin-Bezel Trend

Remember the LG enV Pro? Intended to launch back in November 2010 on Verizon as the first clamshell Android device, it sort of just… disappeared. Nearly 6 months after its first lap around the rumor mill, we’ve yet to see a thing.

While VZW may have scrapped the enV Pro (or just delayed it indefinitely) for reasons unknown, it looks like LG hasn’t given up on it just yet; this morning, the enV Pro is making its triumphant return to the rumor mill — but this time, it’s for US Cellular and branded the “LG Genesis”.

Our buds over at AndroidCentral managed to dig up all the details, from the shot up above to a full spec sheet.

Here’s what’s inside:

  • Android 2.2
  • Single core 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU
  • 3.5″ display on the external face, 3.2″ display on the internal face
  • 5 megapixel rear camera
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi (with WiFi hotspot support for up to 5 devices)
  • Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR
  • 430MB Internal storage, with microSD support

As you’d expect from anything that once carried the enV name, this one’s neither ultra high-end nor too deep on the low-end; it comes in somewhere around the lower end of the mid-range, and will likely be targeted at folks who want a messaging phone with a bit of extra kick. Looking at what US Cellular offers currently, I’d expect this one to launch at around $150 after contract and rebates are accounted for.
