LG has just unveiled its new budget Android handset, dubbed LG Fortune. This new device is the same LG K4 2017 that was launched earlier year. The LG Fortune is only limited to the US and can be purchased from Cricket Wireless, which has it listed for $89.99.
With its slim and lightweight design, the LG Fortune sports a 5-inch FWVGA display with 480 x 854 px resolution. Despite the fact that there are thick bezels around the display, the handset does have on-screen navigation buttons. Under the hood, it is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.1GHz. The RAM capacity of the handset is yet to be mentioned, but we can expect it pack 1GB or 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of native storage that can be further expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card slot.
In the camera button, the LG Fortune features a 5MP main camera with autofocus, and LED flash. Also adorning the front of the device is a 5MP selfie camera. Unlike the LG K4 2017, the device doesn’t have the dual SIM slots. Running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it is backed by a 2,500mAh battery that can offer a decent battery life considering the less powerful specs. In terms of conntectivity options, the handset includes 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, 3.5mm Audio port and a microUSB 2.0 port. Disappointingly, the Fortune doesn’t offer NFC support that is found on the K4 2017. Its dimensions are 144.76 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm and weighs 136 grams. The Fortune’s volume rocker is located on the left edge, while the power button found on the rear allows you quickly wake the phone with no reaching.
