LG first unveiled the Optimus F7 back at MWC, hoping to bring to the market a modestly-priced 4G capable handset for those looking for a solid Android experience without paying top dollar to get it. Now a new rumor indicates that the LG Optimus F7 may soon be making its way over to U.S. prepaid carrier, Boost Mobile.

The unofficial news of the Optimus F7’s upcoming arrival on Boost comes by way of @evleaks, though there has been no word on how much it will cost or even when exactly it will arrive.

We do know that the Korean version of the F7, the Optimus LTE 3, costs 600,000 Won or about $530. Don’t worry, it is very unlikely to cost that much stateside. Considering Boost Mobile’s current smartphones range from $75 – $320, I would wager the Optimus F7 will fall somewhere close the carrier’s current pricing range.

While the phone isn’t going to blow anyone away, it’s specs should be good enough for those with less-demanding mobile needs. The phone features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage, a 720p 4.7-inch display, 8MP camera and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

If the rumor proves true, any Boost Mobile customers interested in picking this one up, provided it touches down for under $350?

  • Man, I hope this is true. I would definitely pick one up if it comes in at $300 or less.

  • $530 is too much …if it is at $300-300.. it is ok

  • That is a awesome device for boost
    Customers to purchase hopefully it will
    Priced at 299.99 or 249.99.
