Announcement. LG Fortune 3 - pink hundred-dollar carrier smartphone

LG’s North American portfolio is replenished with the LG Fortune 3. A simple workhorse for the Cricket Wireless operator.

Often these carrier models arefull copies of “regular” smartphones. But not this time, it seems. There is nothing similar to Fortune 3 in the LG repertoire yet. Which, however, does not mean at all that we are faced with something unusual and interesting.

Chipset MediaTek Helio P22. At the time of the announcement, two years ago it was positioned as a chip for mid-range smartphones. Now it’s expectedly slid into the budget segment, where it continues to exist safely. The chip is popular and in demand. Although low-power - about a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu.

Everything is sad with memory. Only 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory. There is support for memory cards, of course. Out of 16 GB, 7.423 GB is available - check out the accuracy!

The screen is typical for low-cost devices. Diagonal 5.7 ″, teardrop-shaped neckline. The average resolution is 720 × 1520 (295 ppi). The type of matrix used is not specified. Most likely something IPS-like.

A modest 3000 mAh battery without fast and especially without wireless charges.

Front camera 5 MP. The rear camera is double. The main module is 13 MP and wide-angle 5 MP.

Wi-Fi dual-band, outdated USB (micro), a fingerprint scanner is nowhere to be seen.

Two colors. Classic silver and pink.

$ 99.99 (₽6910) at the start of sales.
