LG unveils the F90 and F70, members of the new, lower-end F series
LG made the L series III official before MWC started, but it’s got some news for the actual show too. The Korean company has officially introduced two new Android smartphones, the F90 and F70. Given the naming scheme used, one could assume that these are probably meant as successors of sorts to the Optimus F5 and Optimus F7 from last year. However, the F90 and F70 are lower-end in some regards when compared to those, so it’s not entirely clear what’s going on here.
One thing is obvious, though: LG is intent on making the Optimus brand disappear from its product range. Following the G series and the L series, now the company’s F series handsets have dropped it too.
The LG F90 comes with a 4.7-inch 540×960 IPS touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The LG F70 has a 4.5-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,440 mAh battery. It too runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet for either of these, but with such specs they should both be dirt cheap in order to sell well.
