LG F3Q for T-Mobile shows off a new look in latest leak

We’re already looking forward to future flagships from LG like the rumored G Pro 2, and the the story’s still not done so far as the international launch of the G Flex goes (with the US chapter just now being written), but there have been more than just high-end LG smartphones on our radar. Last year, we started hearing about a new lower-end model for T-Mobile, notable for (if nothing else) its slide-out hardware keyboard, a feature that’s been flirting with extinction for years now. While we had a nice render of this LG F3Q to check out back then, a new one has just arrived, purporting to share the “final design” of the Android.

The good news: we get a nice splash of color compared to the gray keyboard on that previous render, as well as a better look at the physical construction of the keys themselves. The bad news: those changes appear to be purely external, and the F3Q is still supposed to offer the same kind of middling specs we’ve been expecting all along, like a dual-core 1GHz SoC with four-inch WVGA display. Still, the 2460mAh battery sounds pretty decent for a phone with this kind of power, and it supports LTE and should arrive running Jelly Bean 4.1.2, so maybe it won’t be too bad if it’s cheap enough.

Based on previous leaks, it looks like T-Mobile will launch the LG F3Q next Wednesday, January 22.
