LG Introduces the mid-range LG F90 at MWC
Earlier today, we told you about the LG F70, one of the new mid-range models announced at MWC by LG. Now it is time to discuss the LG F90. With a 4.7 inch screen and a resolution of 540 x 960, this unit is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400. The LG F90 brings 512MB of RAM to the party along with just 4 GB of native storage. Don't fret, a microSD slot is available to add extra memory capacity if needed. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and .3MP respectively and a rather large (for it's class) 3000mAh cell powers the phone. Android 4.4 is installed out of the box.

LG's Knock Code is included with the phone. That's the new feature that takes Knock On from the LG G2, and brings it to another level. Knock Code lets you tap on the screen using a pattern to unlock the device. Like the LG F70, this is not a model for the spec counters, but for the person seeking a mid-range handset.

So far, LG has not revealed it's plans for pricing and releasing the phone.

The LG F70 and the LG F90 (R) were introduced at MWC on Monday

4 GB of storage? Really? I get the low end specs but 4 GB of storage is unacceptable.

That's the reason why I chose the Samsung Galaxy Light over the LG Optimus F3. (I didn't know how powerful the Galaxy Light was).
The Light has only 8gb, but 8gb is at least enough for apps and some big games. 8GB is more than double storage of 4GB because the extra 4gb has nothing taken away by the system.
4gb of storage is really unacceptable.

Idk when. I just got it 4 days ago. It's available for T-mobile in the US, and I don't think it's available elsewhere.
Man, it's a powerful little phone, all for $150 off ebay or $170 off Amazon

I'm not a fan of these "mid rangers" from LG. if it has less than a gig of ram at this point in the evolution of cellular devices...its low end not mid range. All and all, the screen and ram are the two most deciding factors on whether a device is midrange to low end. That is why IMHO, the Moto G is a "Mid ranger" on a "low end" budget. But seriously, I need to see more ram, and better screens from these "mid ranger" because the bar has been set high. You're my second favorite OEM...don't make me replace you with Sony...

That's what I thought. This phone is garbage, but it will run forever!
