Hands-on: LG Optimus F5 and Optimus F7 – Last year’s high-end is this year’s mid-range [VIDEO]

We already showed you the LG Optimus G Pro, arguably LG’s highest-of-end devices and while spending a little time in their booth here at Mobile World Congress 2013, we got ourselves acquainted with their upcoming mid-tier device line up: the LG Optimus F5 and LG Optimus F7.

Officially announced just before last weekend, the 4G LTE equipped LG Optimus F5 and F7 tout higher than usual capacity batteries — 2,150mAh and 2,540, respectively — and last year’s high-end specs, meaning both of these devices are more than fully capable little Androids. Here’s a quick spec refresher:

Optimus F5 Specs:

  • Operating System: Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2
  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Dual-Core
  • Display: 4.3-inch IPS (256 ppi)
  • Size: 126.0 x 64.5 x 9.3mm
  • Memory: 8 GB / 1 GB RAM / microSD (up to 32GB)
  • Camera: 5.0 MP AF / 1.3 MP
  • Battery: 2,150mAh

Optimus F7 Specs:

  • Operating System: Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2
  • Processor: 1.5 GHz Dual-Core
  • Display: 4.7-inch True HD IPS (312 ppi)

We still don’t have a launch schedule for these devices here in the states, but with sleek looks, solid specs and all day battery life, the LG Optimus F5 and F7 are sure to be real crowd pleasers once they do launch. I happen to have my eye on that F7, or “ LG Optimus G Lite” as I like to call it. Anyone impressed with LG’s showing this year at MWC 2013?
