LG announces F-Series 4G LTE-enabled phones: Optimus F7 and F5

LG outs two new midrange phones under their new F-Series. These are designed to bring capable 4G LTE speeds for mass audiences without being shedding too much cash for a flagship phone. The Optimus L5 and the higher end L7 will make a debut on the MWC in Barcelona but their specs becomes available before our very eyes.

Optimus F7 is a trimmed-down version of the Optimus G. It sports a legit 4.7-inch True HD IPS display that is packed with 312 ppi. Underneath this slab is a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with an ample 2540 mAh battery that could make you last long on the road.  Aside from the fact that it'll come with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box, it'll also feature some flagship-esque software like the upgraded multi-tasking QSlide function, Live Zooming, etc.

On the other hand, Optimus F5 is also framed with a 4.3-inch True HD IPS display and driven by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. Battery is a capable 2,150 mAh. Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) will run the whole show for the Optimus F5. Both handsets are 4G LTE-enabled device.

“LG continues to lead the industry with 4G LTE innovation and the Optimus F Series, a well-balanced an well-equipped 4G LTE smartphone for the mass market, embodies the best of our broad LTE patent portfolio and innovative UX features,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With adoption of LTE expected to explode in 2013, we are sending a clear message to consumers with the Optimus F Series that LTE isn’t just for heavy content users and techies anymore.
