LG announces Optimus F5 and Optimus F7 4G LTE smartphones

The 4.3-inch LG Optimus F5 and 4.7-inch Optimus F7 will be introduced at the Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona next week.

According to LG, Optimus F5 and Optimus F7 are aimed at a wider audience. Looking at the specifications, it is reasonable to guess that price will be low and hardware specification will be sufficient for most consumers. It is crowded in the mid-range price segment so it will be exciting to see how the two phones will perform and what the final retail price will be.

Both the Optimus F5 and Optimus has quite powerful batteries. The Optimus F5 with a 2150 mAh battery and the Optimus F7 with a 2540 mAh battery. According to the data we have in our phone specification database, this is among the best in class. A large 4.7-inch display will of course draw power but the IPS display is quite power efficient.

Both smartphones has the typical look of a LG phone. Either you like it, or you don't.

LG Optimus F5 will be released first and LG expect the smartphone to be available in Europe during the second quarter. Optimus F7 will be released later this year.
