LG on Wednesday officially announced the LG F60, a new Android smartphone that will soon be available in select markets around the world. LG promises that the F60 will sell for a “reasonable price” though didn’t define specifically what “reasonable” means. The phone sports LTE connectivity, however, and a relatively entry-level feature set that suggests it won’t break the bank when it does launch.
The F60 is equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, a 4.5-inch display with a WVGA resolution (207ppi), 1GB of RAM, either 4GB or 8GB of storage, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, a 2,100mAh battery, Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, Bluetooth 4.0 and more. It will make its debut in Europe, Asia and the Americas this week, LG said, and will launch in black or white depending on the market it launches in.
The F60 offers some of the features found in other more premium LG handsets, like Gesture Shot and Touch & Shoot, both of which make it easier to quickly snap a picture without digging through menus and manually launching the camera app. You’ll also find LG’s unique Knock Code feature, which we love, and it allows you to set a unique passcode and unlock the device by tapping different sectors on the lock screen. Finally, it also has unique software that brightens the border of the screen while snapping a selfie to improve the shot.
Again, LG didn’t announce a specific price for the F60 but said it will be sold in both single-SIM and dual-SIM variants depending on the market.
