LG today announced the global launch of the F70 Android smartphone, which it first revealed at Mobile World Congress in February. The F70 is very similar to the F90, which is branded as the Volt for Sprint. The F70 features a 4.5-inch WVGA screen, quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel/VGA camera configuration. The F70 comes with support for HSPA+ and LTE networks, as well as Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC. It features a handful of LG user interface functions, such as Knock Code, Guest Mode, and Quick Window. LG said the F70 will reach Europe in May, followed by Asia, Central and South America, and North America later. No U.S. carriers have formally announced support for the F70.

LG F90 Coming To Sprint as Volt

Feb 26, 2014, 1:00 PM   by Rich Brome

LG this week revealed two new mid-range Android phones with LTE 4G: the F70 and F90. At the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona this week, they showed off a Sprint version of the F90, which seems to be called the Volt. The Volt has a 4.7-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel main camera, front camera, Snapdragon 400 processor, NFC, removable 3,000 mAh battery, tri-band LTE (Sprint Spark,) IR remote control, and a memory card slot. The software includes LG's QSlide, Knock Code, and Smart screen, which keeps the screen from timing out while you're looking at it. It ships with Android Kit Kat 4.4. Pricing and release date were not announced. The F70 is a smaller cousin to the F90. It has a 4.5-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and a smaller battery, but is otherwise identical.
