It’s been a while since we’ve seen any carrier or OEM break out a QWERTY Android, but that doesn’t mean it’s dead. Nope, T-Mobile and LG look to be readying a new 5-row sliding QWERTY known as the Optimus F3Q.
A new photo leaked by @evleaks shows us the upcoming device will feature at least 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, and a custom LG user interface. Given that the hardware in the standard Optimus F3 are mid-range at best, we might now expect much power out of this one. Still, that may not matter to those who prefer the comforts of a physical keyboard.

It’s not clear when the Optimus F3Q might arrive; however, we could see it sooner rather than later.
