LG F70 features a 4.5-inch display and a quad-core SoC
LG was an early bird at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The South Korean conglomerate already unveiled its flagship products - the LG G Pro 2, the LG G2 mini, and the LG L3 Series.
But little did we know that LG was also working on a new mid-range Android smartphone.
Enter the LG F70, a phone that runs on the latest Android OS (Android KitKat). It dons a 4.5-inch WVGA IPS display and is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz.
The LG F70 has a 1GB RAM and a tad 4GB of internal storage. Thankfully, the phone has a microSD slot, expanding the storage capacity to up to 32GB. Other features include a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a front VGA shooter, and a 2,440mAh removable battery.
Perhaps the major selling point of the F70 is its support for LTE. LG is regarded as a leader in the LTE race. According to the patent firm TechIM, LG is leading the LTE-A Standard Essential Patents with 288 patents registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the European Patent Office. That accounts for 23 percent of all patents in the same category.
The LG F70 neatly falls into the middle-range smartphone category, but remarkable features such as Android KitKat, LTE support, a quad-core SoC, and LG's Knock Code feature make it worth buying.
