It’s not often that we get to see Android smartphones sporting full QWERTY slide-out keyboards these days, but this handset species has not died yet.
It looks like T-Mobile and LG may have joined forces to launch such a device, reportedly called the Optimus F3Q. As you can see in the picture below, there’s already a leaked image from a famous leaker showing the device, and considering that @evleaks has been accurate with many previous renders of unreleased mobile devices, we would assume the Optimus F3Q will be released at some point in the near future.

Except for the image, there aren’t many details about this Optimus F3Q in the wild, but we can tell you that in case the picture is accurate, the device will feature a five-row keyboard and won’t ship with KitKat on board.
Furthermore, considering that an Optimus F3 (top image) already exists – the phone features a 4-inch display and runs Jelly Bean – we would expect the F3Q to be just a variation of that handset.
Anyone looking forward to a buying a new Android slider?
