LG F70 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, targets new LTE users

Although LG announced most of its new Android smartphones before MWC 2014 even started, the company has one more handset to show us: the LG F70.

Unveiled today in Barcelona, the LG F70 “is expected to appeal to millions of new LTE customers around the world.” So, yes, the F70 has LTE connectivity, but it will not wow anyone with its specs.

The new LG handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat and comes with that nifty Knock Code screen unlocking feature. It sports a 4.5-inch IPS display with 480 x 800 pixels, thus offering a 207 ppi density. Other features include a quad-core 1.2GHz processor of unknown provenience, VGA front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The device measures 127.2 x 66.4 x 10.0mm, coming with a 2,440 mAh removable battery. Reportedly, this battery “has the largest capacity in its class so users will be able experience the exceptional speed of LTE without having to recharge mid-day.”

“Not only does the LG F70 offer the best of LTE technology, its hardware and UX are also best-in-class. Utilizing our expertise in the field of 4G technology, we plan to strengthen our leadership in the global market,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The F70 is the sixth new LG Android smartphone introduced this year, following the LG G Pro 2, LG G2 Mini, LG L90, LG L70 and LG L40.

For the moment, we don’t know how much the LG F70 will cost, and neither when it’s going to be released. But we’ll keep you posted.

That looks like the Nexus 5 and Galaxy S3 had a baby. That screen is a really really poor choice. That screen alone will push users away. The rest looks good for a mid range phone.
