LG's new Exalt LTE feature phone for Verizon ditches CDMA

This week, Verizon released a new, dumb flip phone. They certainly are making a comeback and it looks like more people are willing to buy one. Verizon just launched a new LTE flip-phone which is made by LG.

Anyway, despite being an unimpressive device spec-wise, the LG Exalt LTE does come with a special characteristic. This is a Verizon exclusive phone which you can purchase online or offline at the Verizon outlets. While Verizon will require $20 or more per month for decent smartphones, the Exalt LTE will only set you back $7.00 per month.

The flip-phone comes with 8GB storage and features a 5MP camera. You also won't be able to access any type of app store to download apps, so why bother with 4G LTE?

That's because the Exalt LTE's monthly price is significantly lower than that of a smartphone.

LTE capabilities on a basic phone seem rather unnecessary on the surface. In addition to LTE, it supports Wi-Fi, HD voice, Bluetooth 4.1 and integrated text-to-speech function. There's a 3.5mm audio port for plugging in your wired headphones. If you run out of space, then you can also expand it further by adding a microSD card upto 32GB.

While flippers like the new LG Exalt LTE are popular choices in countries like Japan, customers in the United States aren't completely immune to their charms either.
