Budget handsets are miles better from what they used to be thanks to devices like the Moto G, although one factor they can do better is in terms of connectivity. LG is looking to remedy that with the launch of the F60, an LTE-enabled smartphone for budget conscious buyers.
While LG has not revealed the price of the F60, the manufacturer has stated that the device will offer LTE connectivity at a "reasonable price." For that reasonable price, you'll get a 4.5-inch WVGA (800 x 480) display, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU (which is most likely the Snapdragon 200), 1 GB RAM, 4 or 8 GB internal memory based on the market, microSD slot, 5 MP camera, 1.3 MP front shooter and a 2,100 mAh battery as well as the aforementioned LTE connectivity along with the usual host of connectivity options.
LG is bringing over features usually found in its high-end devices like Gesture Shot, Front Camera Light, Touch & Shoot along with Knock Code. The device itself comes loaded with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
The F60 is set to go on sale this week in Europe, followed by markets in Asia and Americas. The device will be available in black and white color variations along with single-SIM and dual-SIM configurations based on the region.
What do you guys think of LG's efforts with the F60? Any takers for the device?
