LG Optimus F7

Prepaid carrier to launch LG's cheap and cheerful LTE handset, says @evleaks

LG's Optimus F series is all about introducing low-cost, mid-range LTE-capable hardware to the market, and so a prepaid carrier like Boost Mobile seems a natural fit for the Optimus F7, the higher-specced device of the two. According to prolific Twitter leaker @evleaks and 9to5Google, that's exactly where the Optimus F7 will end up, alongside Boost's two existing LTE offerings, the HTC One SV and ZTE Force.

In addition to the aforementioned LTE radios, the LG Optimus F7 packs a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a 4.7-inch 720p display and an 8-megapixel camera, placing it squarely in the middle of the road when it comes to smartphone hardware specs.

We went hands-on with the Optimus F5 and F7 at Mobile World Congress back in February, so check our write-up for some first impressions and photos of the Korean version.

wow boost is getting a phone with specs similar to the galaxy s3. pretty impressive for a budget prepaid carrier. still midrange but 6-7 months ago it would have been called high end

Yeah, man! I was just reading this thinking at first glance these specs are basically the same as my good ol' One X!

It's only 10 months old. I'd be really interested to see what the price is going to be.

@ Phil Nickinson, is Boost's LTE the same as Sprint's, and if so is it available in on markets that Sprint has already lit up?

Update:
Boost does use Sprint's LTE network, but you only get 2.5Gbs of LTE data and the rest is 3G. I'll stick with Sprint and keep my unlimited 4GLTE.

Awesome! I got a free Boost Mobile Card Code and it was legit! You can get one too from freeboostmobileminutes{d●t}com
