Although LG already started showing to the world its new range of mobile devices days before MWC 2014, the company still has more hidden up its sleeve. For one, it has announced a mid-range smartphone that offers Android 4.4 KitKat and 4G LTE connectivity—the new LG F70.

LG hopes to attract would-be buyers who are one looking for blazing fast data transfers and are also new to the smartphone scene, and it just might be able to do so with its LG F70 smartphone. It comes with the latest Android version available today, which is something of a requirement for phone makers to use in their devices but is somehow neglected in favor of older versions.

To make things simple on the software side, the LG F70 makes use of the Easy Home launcher in an effort to streamline the home screen. Icons and fonts are also a bit bigger, which is a good thing for a phone with only a pixel density of 207ppi. The new Knock Code feature (also found in the G Pro 2) allows unlocking the device with a personalized pattern of taps.

LG F70 Specs

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 4.5-inch IPS LCD (480×800 WVGA), ~207ppi
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • Adreno 305 GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage
  • microSD support up to 32GB
  • 5-megapixel main camera, with autofocus and LED flash
  • 0.3-megapixel front camera
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 3G, HSDPA, LTE
  • Dimensions: 127.2 x 66.4 x 10mm
  • 2440mAh battery

LG F70

Hardware specs are decent enough to label the LG F70 as a mid-range smartphone. The press release hasn’t specified the exact chipset used in the device, but we expect it to have a quad-core Snapdragon processor and Adreno 305 GPU. Multitasking between apps should be fine with 1GB of RAM. Photography and data storage are where the LG F70 fall short, with only 4GB internal memory for user files and a weak duo of 5-megapixel rear- and VGA front-facing cameras.

Pricing and availability information for the LG F70 are not known at the moment. There will be at least two color options for the device: black and white.
