LG’s MWC showing, if nothing else, has been nicely predictable. Just like last year, that meant making most of its announcements in advance of the actual show. And just like last year, we saw a new wave of L-series budget handsets. When learning about those three new models last Monday, we posited that this all meant that we’d similarly be seeing LG introduce a couple new F-series phones – again, just like last year. It may have taken until the last minute, but sure enough, news of a pair of new F-series Androids quietly slipped out yesterday.
Whereas those L devices were seriously low-end, these F models are a bit more respectable (though not by a heck of a lot). The F90 is the better equipped of the two, with a 4.7-inch qHD screen, Snapdragon 400, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage (microSD expandable), and an eight-megapixel main camera with VGA front-facer. It also gets a very large capacity 3000mAh battery. And unlike those L-series models, as an F-series device, the F90 support LTE.
The F70, on the other hand, has a 4.5-inch WVGA display, a 2440mAh battery, and its main camera is only five megapixels. Other than that – SoC, RAM, storage, and all – the F70 is equipped similarly to the F90. Both phones will run Android 4.4 KitKat when they go up for sale in the coming months.
