Meet the LG Exalt, Verizon's First LTE-Only Flip Phone
Verizon Wireless recently added the LG Exalt LTE to its lineup of inexpensive flip phones. The Exalt LTE has the distinction of being Verizon's first 4G LTE basic phone, according to the carrier. The handset includes LTE and UMTS/GSM radios, but the Exalt LTE does not support Verizon's legacy CDMA 3G network. That makes it unique among Verizon flip phones. In addition to LTE, the Exalt includes WiFi and a high-quality speaker for HD voice calls over either LTE or WiFi. The Exalt LTE has a 3.0-inch display with 400 by 240 pixels, a 1,470mAh battery, and a 5-megapixel camera. The Exalt LTE packs 8 GB of internal storage and supports microSD memory cards up to 32 GB. Verizon didn't say what operating system the Exalt LTE runs, nor what processor might be power the phone. The LG Exalt LTE is available online only for $168 at full retail or $7 per month for 24 months.

What's the point?
It's also sad to see the useless gimicky front LCD, instead of providing a reguler, easy to read display.
I do welcome (improved over the Exalt II) the 8gb of interior memory instead of 256mb!! and the HD-quality 720p video recording. Is the camera/lens itself improved? It remains to be seen. Both have a 5mp. I hope phoneScoop would do a review on this phone.
In my opinion, if the...
any idea on OS and chipset?
Screen Resolution 400 x 240 pixels
Battery Capacity 1,470 mAh (Removable)
Camera Resolution 5 MP
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 1.1 GHz Quad-Core
Storage 8 GB (up to 4.3 GB usable)
If it runs an OS like BrewMP or stripped-down Android, don't expect to reap any of the benefits like apps. This is not a smartphone.
