LG Announces F Series: Optimus F5 and F7 to Be Showcased at MWC

Yesterday, we brought you some leaked renders of two of LG’s many upcoming Androids, the Optimus F5 and Optimus F7 from the company’s F series. At the time, all we had were those names and the pics, and were expecting to get the full story on the two phones as the Mobile World Congress got started. Like so many other of the handsets LG is planning to showcase at the event, it’s gone ahead and gotten a head start, officially announcing the F5 and F7 today.

If you’re interested in a high-end Android, set your sights elsewhere – like on the Optimus G Pro – as these F series models are decidedly mid-range. As the numbering should suggest, the F7 is the more powerful of the pair, with a 4.7-inch 720p LCD, dual-core 1.5GHz SoC, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera, and a 2540mAh battery.

The F5, on the other hand, is equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2GHz SoC, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, and a 2150mAh battery.

Both phones will arrive running Android 4.1.2, have 8GB of internal flash, operate on LTE networks, and support microSD expansion. The F5 should go up for sale first, hitting Europe next quarter. The F7 will follow shortly thereafter. For now, there’s no word on pricing.
