The Optimus F5 sports a 4.3-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood.
The Optimus F7 sports a 4.7-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM under the bonnet.
The phones run Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), which is, unfortunately, not the latest version of Android. The latest version of Android is version 4.2, which can be found running on devices such as the Google Nexus 4. Although not the latest, it’s still a more up-to-date version, which means most of the more recent Android features are on board.
Both phones are capable of connecting to 4G LTE networks and are confirmed to hit Europe in between the months of April and June. However, speaking to CNET UK, LG said that a UK launch is still unconfirmed. We’re hoping they do land on our shores.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “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.”
He adds, “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. It’s for everyone.”
This suggests that the two will not come with a hefty price tag.
