After A Failure To Launch, LG enV Pro Gets Reborn As The LG Genesis For US Cellular

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.
