LG F70 intends to deliver LTE connectivity to the masses

I guess making a 4G LTE handset that is highly affordable to the masses is a sound marketing strategy, don’t you think so?
In fact, the LG F70 is said to take the LTE experience to a totally new level, where it will run on a quad-core 1.2GHz processor while sporting the Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system version. There is a 4.5” IPS display that has been encased within a slim and sleek body, allowing this compact smartphone to deliver life like images for a truly immersive experience that fits nicely in a single hand, quite unlike them pesky phablets that are way too large to hold for your own comfort. Apart from that, the LG F70 will also run on a 2,440mAh battery which ought to hold a sufficient charge for majority of the users throughout the day.
Other than that, the LG F70 will also arrive fully-loaded with LG’s proprietary UX features including KnockCode, which was first introduced in LG’s premium G Series smartphones. Knock Code basically allows users to power on and unlock their LG smartphones in one easy step through the entering of a personalized “knock” pattern on the smartphone’s display. Knock Code delivers the kind of convenience and greater security level as the knock pattern can be entered anywhere on the screen in any size, regardless of whether the display is turned on or off, via a personalized sequence of two to eight taps. This translates to approximately 80,000 plus possible combinations, good luck to those who want to gain entry to your handset.
Apart from that, there is also Plug & Pop that automatically recommends options which are most likely to be used whenever a headset or USB cable is detected. With Guest Mode, users can keep selected content private when sharing their LG F70 with family and friends. Pricing details for selected regions remain to be known, but it ought to be revealed in due time.
