T-mobile is selling the handset for $139.99 at full retail or for $5.84 for 24 months. Boost Mobile is selling the K7 as the Tribute 5.
Boost Mobile today said the LG Tribute 5 is now available online and in stores. LG announced the Tribute 5 as the K7 earlier this month. It features a 5-inch screen, quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 5-megapixel front and rear cameras, and a 2,125mAh battery. LG-sepcific functions include Gesture Shot, KnockON, and Knock Code. The Tribute 5, which runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, costs $99.99.
T-Mobile and MetroPCS will both sell the K7 Android phone recently announced by LG. LG previously announced that Boost would carry the same phone branded as the Tribute 5.
LG introduced two mid-range phones today as part of its new K Series. The K7, which is the smaller of the two phones, will be sold in the U.S. as the Tribute 5. Here are our first impressions of this camera-centric Android smartphone from LG.
LG today said the newly announced K7 Android smartphone will be sold in the U.S. before too long. Rather that use the global K Series branding, Boost Mobile will sell the device as the Tribute 5. LG expects the K7/Tribute 5 to hit stores during the first quarter of the year. Boost Mobile has not confirmed pricing nor availability.
LG today announced the K Series, a new range of smartphones that prioritizes advanced photography features. The first two phones in the K Series are the K10 and K7. They offer LG photo tools such as Gesture Shot, Gesture Interval Shot, and Tap and Shot, as well as front-facing flashes for self portraits. The phones introduce new design language LG calls "glossy pebble" in order to attract younger users. The glass panels use what LG terms 2.5D Arc Glass to provide a smooth seam where the glass meets the side edge of the phone. Like many other LG handsets, the side edges are free of buttons, which are placed on the rear panel.
- K10: The larger of the two new K Series handsets has a 5.3-inch high-definition screen, with a 13-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera. The processor will vary by market, but the main LTE variant has a 1.2 GHz quad-core engine under the hood with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. It boasts a 2,300mAh battery.
- K7: The K7 has a 5-inch FWVGA screen, with an 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. The LTE variant has a 1.1 GHz quad-core processor with 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The battery measures 2,125mAh.
