For those of you who use prepaid services like Boost or Virgin for your wireless carrier, you might be interested to know that both carriers apparently have a new LG Android device on the way. According to evleaks who posted these press renders of the phone, the LG Volt will be coming to Boost Mobile in black, and Virgin Mobile in white, later on this year. Both devices have a rear facing camera of unknown quality accompanied by an LED flash, a front facing camera, and soft keys for back and menu buttons as well as a physical home key, and the audio jack up top instead of on the bottom like on some other LG devices.
While the exact specs of the device aren’t known just yet, the LG Volt looks pretty similar to the LG F90 that was shown off back at MWC in February, which did have the specs listed. The LG F90 comes powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, and sports an 8MP camera on the back with a standard VGA camera on the front. The screen will be a 4.7-inch IPS display with 540 x 960 resolution, and come packing a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that is none other than Qualcomm Snapdragon 400. It also comes with 512MB of RAM,(remember when that was a lot for a smartphone?)4GB of internal memory that can be expandable via microSD and run Android 4.4. Kit Kat, come with LTE support, and of course support wifi and Bluetooth connections.
While there isn’t any confirmation that this is officially the F90 that we heard about a couple months ago it does bare a striking resemblance. We wouldn’t be surprised to see this device launch before the end of the summer, and if that’s the case we should learn more from LG and both carriers on prices and availability when we’re closer to the launch of the Volt. While it may not be as cheap as some of the other devices we’ve seen launch on both networks, it likely won’t be too expensive given the carriers it’s going to in the first place. Do you subscribe to either Boost or Virgin? Would you pick up the LG Volt if the price was right?
