Just yesterday we were talking about BlackBerry’s commitment to phones with hardware QWERTY keyboards, and how such devices will be the company’s main focus going forward. Even with such smartphones dwindling in number lately, there have been recent signs – like that one from BlackBerry – that interest still continues. Last month we saw a render of the keyboard-packing LG F3Q leak, and today we start getting a sense of how that model will arrive, thanks to a new T-Mobile leak.
As you can see below, it looks like we’re looking at plans to make the F3Q available as of January 22. We haven’t hear any details on pricing just yet, but based on what’s leaked of the F3Q’s hardware layout – specs like a lowly WVGA four-inch screen and 1.2GHz dual-core SoC – we can’t imagine T-Mobile will be able to get away with charging too much.
What about that Sony i1 there? That seems to be the just-announced Xperia Z1S; we’ve already been told to expect Sony’s flagship to go up for pre-order on January 13, with full sales beginning on January 22, just like we see here. You’ll pay just over $600 for the handset.
