LG officially unveiled the Optimus F7 during Mobile World Congress. We then later saw the handset released as the Optimus LTE III in Korea, however otherwise, release news for the F7 has remained on the quiet side. And well, while we have yet to see anything official, rumors suggest Boost Mobile will soon be launching the handset.

The details are coming by way of Twitter, more specifically, @evleaks who has said rather simply that the LG Optimus F7 is going to be joining the Boost Mobile lineup. Basically, that is to say a release timeframe and possible price remain a mystery. The handset is said to be sporting a Boost Mobile codename of LG FX1.

Looking back, LG announced the Optimus F7 as a mid-level device stating that with the F-Series of smartphones, they were looking to bring a “premium user experience and the speed of 4G LTE to a mass audience.” In other words, this should go to suggest the Boost Mobile price probably won’t be all that high. Specs for the handset include Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean along with a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display and dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

Other specs for the Optimus F7 include 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 2450 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8.0 megapixel rear-facing camera. Aside from the hardware, LG was also showing the handset as having software goodies to include QSlide and Live Zooming — both of which were features previously available only on the higher-end LG devices.
