LG announced the F70 – a budget-oriented, LTE capable model
LG presented at the Mobile World Congress a couple of new devices and LG F70 is their last offering. The phone combines mid-range specs, budget pricing and LTE-support, which will allow customers to use high-speed 4G networks around the globe at affordable price. It is definitely a smartphone for beginners, fitting somewhere between the low-end and mid-range of devices. However, as many customers cannot afford to buy some top-end model there is still a significant market segment for affordable, yet 4G capable devices. That’s why many companies have started to explore this particular segment and now we can see a variety of affordable mid-range devices.
LG F70 is the latest addition, powered by a quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, backed by 1 GB of RAM. The phone is fronted by a 4.5 inch IPS screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and 4 GB inbuilt storage capacity so many users would find the phone weak. Another major downside of the LG F70 comes in the way of its backside camera. As the sensor is just 5 MP, users won’t be able to take high quality pictures or videos. An area where LG has managed to catch up is the replaceable battery with a decent capacity of 2440 mAh.
As you can see, LG F70 is a typical mid-tier with some compromises in the hardware department. On the other hand, you would be surprised by the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. In contrast to some new devices within the top-end segment, LG F70 comes pre-loaded with the latest OS built and you don’t need to wait months to get the phone updated. The phone will come in two color version – white or black. Unfortunately, there is no word on availability and pricing.
