If you’re not a fan of BlackBerry’s latest devices but still want your smartphone to come equipped with a physical keyboard you’re in luck. According to a leaked T-Mobile roadmap obtained by TmoNews, LG’s rumored F3Q QWERTY handset will launch on the Uncarrier later this month on January 22.
The device is expected to feature similar specs to LG’s Optimus F3, a mid-range smartphone, which packs a 4-inch display, a dual-core processor, a 2,460mAh battery, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and runs Android 4.1. However, we seriously hope the F3Q will be at least a slight upgrade over its all-touch brother.
Based on a press render of the device shared by @evleaks last month, the new smartphone will also feature a metallic slide-out keyboard and a front-facing camera.

There’s no word on how much the device will cost, though the Optimus F3 was available from T-Mobile for $0 down and $10 per month for 24 months. If the latest rumors is true we’ll know the full details in the near future. Stay tuned.
