If you were waiting for the LG’s Optimus F5 smartphone, then your wait is officially over. The company announced yesterday, that they would be making the device available in a number of markets starting from Europe. The device would first hit France followed by South and Central America, Asia and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) over the next few weeks.
Optimus F5 was one of the few smartphones showcased by the company in CES earlier this year. The main selling point of the device is its LTE connectivity. The company has specifically launched the F series so that the customers are able to enjoy high LTE speeds at a low cost. Currently, most of the LTE handsets in the market are high end devices which cost a lot of money. As a result, if anyone wanted a device for moderate usage running on the high speed LTE service, he or she had to buy a high end device. But with the availability of F5 in the coming weeks we are sure that the number of LTE users in the country will rise gradually.
“The Optimus F5 is a natural extension of LG’s lineup of strong LTE devices, offering the lightning-speed of 4G LTE and UX features of a premium phone. With the Optimus F5, we’re confident we can capture an untapped market of new and upgrading smartphone users who crave a feature-rich, LTE device.” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company.
F5 is a nice addition to the existing lineup of smartphones from the company and with a number of carries in US offering high speed 4G LTE connectivity, the device may gain popularity among the budget users in the country.
The device has decent specifications, enough for normal usage. The device runs on 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor with 1GB Ram. The 4.3 inch screen is enough for daily video and text viewing and the inbuilt 8GB internal memory along with the expandable memory option is also a plus point.
The exact pricing of the product is not yet revealed but with the device launching in France shortly, we will have a approximate value of the device in a few days time.
