The price and release date details have been unveiled for the LG Mach smartphone which was announced by Sprint last month. The device brings in a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen display to provide users the best of both worlds.
Hidden below the 4-inch IPS WVGA display which portrays an 800 x 480p resolution, is a 1.2GHz dual core processor that’s based on the Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset. Accompanying the CPU is 1GB of RAM for smooth multitasking. The Mach is Platinum-certified by UL Environment and it carries the CarbonFree label. It houses a 1700mAh Li-ion battery that’s said to provide up to 9 hours and 30 minutes talktime.
According to the carrier, this handset is one of the thinnest in the QWERTY category. What’s more, it even packs in 4G LTE support for quick download speeds. With Sprint, users will have to pick one of the provider’s Everything Data plans. These subscriptions start at $79.99 per month and they offer limitless data, text and calling to any mobile number. The device is Google-certified. That means the Play store can be accessed for acquiring games, apps, songs and movies amongst others.
The LG Mach will hit availability status on November 11 along with the LG Optimus G and the Galaxy Tab 2 via Sprint. The handset can be picked up for $99.99, a cost that’s accompanied by a new line or eligible upgrade and a 2-year service agreement.
