Not willing to wait for Mobile World Congress (MWC), which is less than a week away, LG has decided to take the wraps off its new F series of devices and officially announced the Optimus F7 and Optimus F5.

Joining the upcoming Optimus G Pro as part of the first few LG devices running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, the Optimus F7 is the higher-end of the two – sporting a 4.7″ (312 ppi) True HD IPS display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor (no doubt a Snapdragon S4), 2GB RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 2,540 mAh battery.

The Optimus F5 cuts back on the specs as the name suggests – there’s a 4.3″ (256 ppi) IPS display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 2,150 mAh battery. Other specs common between both devices are 8GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and LTE connectivity.

Both devices come with all the software frills that LG has to offer, including Q-Slide, Live Zooming, QuickMemo, QTranslator and Video Wiz, and many more earlier found only on the Korean manufacturer’s premium devices. Whether or not an update to Android 4.2 would be offered remains to be seen, though we can assume it will be considering the specs of the new F series phones.

Availability and Price

LG will be launching the Optimus F5 in Europe in the second quarter this year, followed by the Optimus F7 later on “in select markets,” though they failed to mention when these devices will be making their way to the US and other regions. Pricing wasn’t announced either, but will be announced at “a later date” along with the exact launch dates.
