Latest image of QWERTY equipped LG Optimus F3Q leaks just days before expected launch

The tweet also revealed the specs for the model, and they appear to be the same exact specs found on the LG Optimus F3. We are looking at a 4 inch screen with 480 x 800 resolution. A dual-core 1.2GHz processor is under the hood and a 5MP camera is on the back, all powered by a 2460mAh cell. The device offers LTE connectivity and has Android 4.1.2 pre-installed. The tweet didn't mentioned pricing, or confirm the earlier leaked launch date of January 22nd.
The bottom line is that the LG Optimus F3Q is merely an LG Optimus F3 with a QWERTY attached. It might be something interesting for those in need of a low to mid-range model with a physical keyboard.

Woah sliding keyboards still exist. Used to love them, but now I find them inconvenient just because it adds bulk and I type much faster on touchscreen keyboards.

I've always wanted another phone with a sliding keyboard (last one was an OG Droid) but the manufacturers always skimped on displays, battery, or build quality. Heck I'm still interested in picking up a cheap used Motorola Droid 4 backup phone just for the feature but the somewhat low end display is putting me off. If only they made a sliding qwerty phone that's 12mm max thickness, 720p (the least) in a 4.3 - 5" display, well defined keys (Droid 4) and at minimum a 2500 mAH battery.

"It might be something interesting for those in need of a low to mid-range model with a physical keyboard." However, it won't be interesting for those in need of a HIGH END model with a physical keyboard.
