LG and Sprint have officially outed the Optimus F3. It's a Jelly Bean 4.1.2 smartphone with a 4" IPS WVGA (480 x 800) screen with Gorilla Glass 2 protection, LTE, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. It will cost you $29.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract and sales start on June 14.

The LG Optimus F3 will come with Google's TalkBack accessibility app, which is intended to aid blind and vision-impaired users get in touch with their close ones, making it the first Sprint device to sport the app out of box.

A secondary front-facing camera is found on the front (VGA most likely) with a 5 MP main one sitting on the back. There's NFC, Wi-Fi Direct, MicroSD card expansion and a 2460 mAh battery.

The LG Optimus F3 will also feature the QuickMemo, QSlide 2.0 and QTranslator apps by LG and come with VuTalk, which enables users to send hand-written notes, photos and drawings in real-time.

The physical-home button of the LG Optimus F3 will have a LED notification light underneath (just like the Optimus G Pro's is) that will glow different colors in order to assist hearing-impaired users detect calls or messages.

In other LG news, US Cellular released the upper-midrange LG Optimus F7 to its customers, which nicely coincides with recently-leaked documents of the handset for the carrier's network.

Sprint is also said to be en route to add the Snapdragon 600-yielding Optimus G Pro to its lineup soon.

Up to always possibly. Even possible to be better....But so much less likely. We will have to wait and see. Either way it will be a great device. It's not just LG though. All manufacturers are catching up as well.
