Boost Mobile’s LG Volt is black, while the Virgin Mobile variant is white. That aside, the two versions appear to be similar. The display of the Volt allows us to see that the handset comes with LTE connectivity, and Knock Code (LG’s newest screen unlocking feature).
From the looks of it, the Volt might be based on the LG L90, which is already available at T-Mobile (since late April). If our assumption is correct, the new smartphone should offer Android 4.4 KitKat, a 4.7-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The rear camera (which has an LED flash) could be a 5MP or 8MP one.
Boost Mobile’s LG Volt is showing a May 19 date on its home screen, so perhaps that’s when it will be released. We’re thinking that the smartphone could cost around $200 at Boost and Virgin Mobile. We will let you know when we hear more about this.
