Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it will offer the LG Optimus F3Q smartphone, an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean device that's equipped with a five-row physical QWERTY keyboard. The handset will be available starting February 5 for $312, or for $13 a month for 24 months.
The 4G LTE-enabled device features a 4-inch IPS display and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor from Qualcomm. Inside, there is a 2,460mAh battery and NFC. In addition, the F3Q includes 4GB of internal storage (plus 32GB of expandable storage via a microSD card slot), 1GB of RAM, and Bluetooth 4.0.
On the back, there is a 5-megapixel camera with flash, and the front will sport a 0.3-megapixel VGA camera as well.
As an LG smartphone, the handset runs the Optimus user interface on top of its Android OS. This UI includes such functionality as the note-taking app, Quick Memo, and the QSlide multitasking mode.
The device also features Wi-Fi calling support, which comes in handy for T-Mobile customers living or working in areas with poor or spotty reception.
