LG Volt with LTE and Android KitKat launched by Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile

LG Volt with LTE and Android KitKat launched by Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile
Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile (Sprint’s two prepaid brands) today introduced the LG Volt, a new Android handset that first appeared last week. Both Boost an Virgin Mobile are selling the Volt for $179.99 - no contract required.

The LG Volt is not based on the LG L90 (as we assumed last week), but on the LG F90. The new handset will offer access to Sprint’s 4G LTE services, including the ultra-fast Sprint Spark network.

Boost Mobile’s LG Volt is available only in black, while the model sold by Virgin Mobile can be bought only in white. But the handset offers the same specs anyway, including: a 4.7-inch qHD (540 x 960 pixels) display, 8MP BSI rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, microSD card support, and a large 3,000 mAh battery. The smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, and comes with LG’s Knock Code screen unlocking feature.

All in all, this is not a bad device for Boost and Virgin Mobile. However, if you don’t need LTE, Boost Mobile has a smartphone that’s definitely a better choice than the LG Volt: the Motorola Moto G, which is offered for only $99.99.
