The 5-inch LG K7 smartphone has just launched on T-Mobile
Announced at CES, the K7 is part of a larger family that encompasses the LG K4 and K10. As we saw in our hands-on with the K7, the design is archetypal LG, and while it doesn't offer the grandeur seen at the company's higher end, its profile is by no means vulgar.
Under the hood, though, there's little to get excited about, particularly as T-Mo wants $140 for the LG K7. At a time when many entry-level devices can still churn out a half-decent performance, the K7 includes a Snapdragon 210 SoC clocked at 1.1 GHz, one solitary gigabyte of RAM and 8 gigs of on-board storage. The fact that a microSD can be slotted in is ideal if you wish to store additional data, though snaps captured on the 5 megapixel front and rear shooters will probably be closer to potato-cam than Instagram.
The LG K7 includes a 2125 mAh battery, a 5-inch, 480 x 854 display and runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. With Marshmallow slowly but surely making its way to devices across the board, there's a slight chance that this device will receive an update at some point. We're not holding our breath on this one, though.
