Leaker extraordinaire @evleaks may have spoiled us with numerous high-profile mobile device leaks over time, but there are moments when even he has to take a break from all the HTC Ones and Samsung Galaxy S4s and Nokia Lumia 1020s, and instead bring some light to much more modest gadgets.
Modest, but not necessarily dismal phones. Like the MetroPCS-bound LG Optimus F6 and Samsung Galaxy Legend for Verizon. Both handhelds have had high-quality press shots unearthed over the weekend and, while they’re certainly not as dull as to be completely ignored, they don’t deserve their own posts on our website either.
The Optimus F6 is already up for grabs via T-Mobile, going for $49 upfront and $10 monthly installments for a grand total of $290. Metro is likely to bring that pricing bar even lower, which I presume will make the F6 quite the attention-grabber.
After all, the 4.5-incher packs the most gigantic battery you’ll ever see inside a mid-ranger, a 2,460 mAh cell, plus a solid dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 gig of RAM.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Legend will probably sit a little lower on the Android totem pole, being tipped to copy most of the specs of last year’s Galaxy Stellar, but to also ditch 4G LTE speeds.
Headed to Big Red’s prepaid line-up, the Legend can’t cost more than 200 bucks, which should be a fair price to pay for a 4-incher with dual-core CPU, 1 GB of RAM, pre-loaded Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (we hope) and 3.15 MP rear-facing camera.
