LG announced the third iteration of L series Android smartphones last week, a few days before MWC started, however, the company didn’t come to Barcelona empty-handed. Two phones of the next-generation F series were made official during the show. New additions to the portfolio include the LG F70 and LG F90 and they seem to be successors to the last year’s Optimus F lineup. Also report claims that the LG F90 will be coming to Sprint network under the name LG Volt.
LG F70 vs. LG F90 (LG Volt)
Surprisingly, both phones: LG F70 and LG F90, appear to be lower-end offerings than the Optimus F devices, at least in some aspects. The new F series, just like the recently unveiled L series and G series, also drops the popular Optimus moniker.
The LG F90 phone, also known as LG Volt for Sprint, seems to fill in the space between the F6 and F7 announced last year. The device sports a 3.7-inch LCD display with not too impressive resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip which is the same Motorola used for the Moto G.
There is 512 MB of RAM on board along with 4 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD slot. Other features of the Volt include an 8-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, a 3,000 mAh battery and a set of connectivity features including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, IR port, Miracast and NFC. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with LG skin on top and a suite of LG-exclusive apps and services such as Quick Remote, QSlide and Knock Code.
The LG F70 is very similar to the F90, but not identical. The F70 is smaller and features a 4.3-inch IPS display with WVGA resolution. The phone is powered by the same 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, however, doubles RAM to 1 GB for better performance.
Under the hood, there is also 4 GB of internal memory with microSD slot for expansion and support for 4G LTE fast internet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS navigation. The F70 is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing shooter. A 2,440 mAh battery keeps the lights on and the OS of choice is Android 4.4 KitKat.
Pricing of either of the phones hasn’t been revealed yet, however, given the specs both should be easy on your wallet.
