The massive LG G2 isn’t the only new LG smartphone hitting the market this year. LG is bringing two other new phones – the Optimus F6 and Optimus F3 – along with the G2 to T-Mobile, and all three will work on T-Mobile’s fledgling 4G LTE network.
You can read up on our hands-on coverage of the 5.2” G2 over here, but suffice it to say it’s the high-end, flagship model of the bunch – one of the first batch of smartphones running on Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 processors. The Optimus F6 dials down the size a little, coming in at 4.5” and also featuring an IPS display. It’ll also have a 5 MP BSI camera, which has the same kind of advanced camera features that the G2 does, including Smart Shutter, which helps you get the best photo out of a bunch. You’ll also get Wi-Fi calling and NFC. The lower-end Optimus F3 has a 4” IPS display and runs on a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. It has a 5 MP rear camera and a 1 MP front-facing camera, with some of the advanced camera features of its bigger sisters. There’s only 4 GB of on-board storage, but it does have a microSD card slot good for another 32 GB. Battery life should be about 13 hours worth of talk time.
Pricing and availability for the G2 and the Optimus F6 are still unknown. The Optimus F3, however, is available right now, for the low, low price of $0. Kind of. You’ll have to put it on a monthly payment plan with T-Mobile, and you’ll need to pay $10 on it every month for 24 months, unless you upgrade with the JUMP program sometime down the line.
