LG F70 European availability imminent, Asia and Americas to follow
LG announced the F70 back in February at MWC, alongside the F90. These two devices are the members of the new F series, which is strangely lower-end in some ways than the Optimus F line from last year.
Recently we’ve seen the F90 leak on its way to Sprint’s prepaid brands, but we haven’t heard anything about the F70 in a pretty long while. Until today, that is, when the Korean smartphone manufacturer decided to let us know that the F70 is due to be released in Europe almost immediately.
The exact words used are “early May” – which is now, essentially. So if you’re in Europe expect to see the LG F70 in a store near you within a few days. The rollout will then include Asia, Central America, South America, and North America at some point in the future. Possible carrier partners haven’t been announced for any region, so we’ll have to wait and see what the situation is in that regard.
The LG F70 comes with 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 runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
Pricing is still a mystery, however, so stick around and we’ll tell you when that gets official.
