LG's expected Optimus F7 brings solid specs to mid-range phone class.
Thanks to US Cellular's leaked documents a while ago, we were robbed of any surprises when it came time for LG to launch the Optimus F7. The device can be considered one of the most impressive mid-range smartphones at the moment, featuring a 4.7 inch true IPS screen at 720p, which is better than most top range phones can boast about. Complete with a Dual Core 1.5 GHz and 2 GB of RAM, the phone has a front facing 1.3 MPx camera coupled with a rear 8 MPx camera. Connectivity is in the hands of a radio that can handle Wifi, 3G, LTE and Bluetooth, while a 2,540 mAh battery should keep Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 running strongly for most people's full days. Storage features 8 GB of internal space with expandable Micro-SD storage, so why not throw one of SD Associations new NFC chips in, and add to the phone's utility belt. The phone will be available soon, starting at $100 for a contract with US Cellular, and a later expected contract-free retail price around $400.
