LG Optimus F5 launches in France on Monday
Korean manufacturer LG is launching the LG Optimus F5 on Monday. The line exists so that LG can offer a lower priced 4G LTE model and France will be the first country to release the device. After France, the phone will be launched in South and Central America, Asia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). With a 2150mAh battery, LG has given the user of the LG Optimus F5 enough battery power to last most of the day. Under the hood is a dual-com 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 4.3 inch display with a qHD resolution brings a pixel density of 256ppi to the device. 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage is included inside the phone. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.3MP respectively and Android 4.1.2 is supposed to be pre-installed, out of the box.

The LG Optimus F5 offers some of the proprietary LG features seen on higher priced models like the LG Optimus G Pro. Chief among them is QSlide, which lets you use two apps at once by making one transparent and the other one solid. Using the bar slide, you can change which app is appearing solid and which one is 'see-through'. You can use Live Zooming to zoom into any specific part of a video. With VideoWiz you can be the director of  video taken with the handset's camera by adding sound and music straight from the phone, along with other enhancements. And QTranslator lets you snap a picture of text in a foreign language and have the words, sentences and phrases translated. The feature accepts 44 different languages and translates them into one of 64 languages.

No word was mentioned as to price, but we should have some updated info on that as soon as Monday.

8 GB of internal memory? why are OEMs getting so miser on storage capacities

but it has a microSD slot. You can freely insert a 32gb and easily make it 40gb. I think you are referring to an iPhone that has 8gb and no microSD slot... that is irritating. .... and this is a mid-range.

"Under the hood is a dual-com 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon" Shouldn't it be dual-core? :)
