According to LG, the F Series has been developed to “bring a premium user experience and the speed of 4G LTE to a mass audience.” But this doesn’t mean the Optimus F7 and F5 are just entry-level smartphones with LTE.
The F7 features a 4.7 inch True HD IPS display, qSlide, Live Zooming, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The handset measures 131.7 x 68.2 x 9.6 mm, and comes with a 2,540 mAh battery.
The F5 sports a 4.3 inch WVGA IPS screen, offering a 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,150 mAh battery.
LG says the F7 and F5 run “the latest” Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Someone should remind the company (or at least its PR department) that the latest version of Android is, in fact, 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Obviously, the new F7 and F5 will be presented by LG later this week at MWC 2013 in Barcelona. The F5 should hit the market starting the second quarter of the year, while the F7 will arrive a bit later. Prices have not been disclosed.
