It appears that LG got a little bit ahead of time recently, by unveiling its new dual-display Genesis smartphone before the Android-based handset was scheduled to be announced by US Cellular. Unfortunately we can’t tell you when it’s due to arrive, as no word was given on a launch date.
What we can tell you however is the specs, which according to Robert Nelson at nexus404.com includes a hardware QWERTY keyboard and the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. What makes the LG Genesis even more interesting is the fact that it features a 3.5-inch external display and a 3.2-inch internal display.
The 5-row keyboard on the LG Genesis (US760) includes a dedicated number row, as well as 5 shortcut keys to the left and a 4-way navigation pad to the right. The LG Genesis also comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 1500mAh battery, 430MB of internal storage and a 5MP camera with flash.
Other specs include 8GB microSD card storage, Dolby sound, DLNA media sharing and support for Wi-Fi Hotspot sharing. We are unsure at this stage exactly how much the LG Genesis will cost, will recent rumors have suggested that US Cellular will offer it for $249.99 on a two year contract.
