Boost Mobile to sell LG K7 as the Tribute 5 in US

The recently announced budget phone, the LG K7, will be sold by Boost Mobile in the United States, but the wireless carrier has decided to ditch the K branding and call it the ‘Tribute 5’ instead.

While Boost Mobile has not revealed the LG K7’s price, its specifications indicate that the handset would be rather affordable. Boost Mobile’s Tribute 5 will available for purchase in the first quarter of the year.

The LG Tribute 5 features a 5-inch screen with FWVGA resolution and it is powered by a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU. On the memory front it might come with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB ROM or 1GB of RAM with 8GB of internal storage. The device has multiple variants, which means it could either have an 8-megapixel primary camera or a 5-megapixel rear-facing snapper. Both the variants feature 5-megapixel selfie cameras.

Earlier at CES 2016, LG announced that it will roll out a new lineup of affordable phones called the K Series, which succeeds its L series. It is aimed squarely at younger users looking for premium features while still on a budget, the K10 and the K7. The K10 and K7 both come in two variants, one with LTE and a 3G only variant with lower specs.

The K series phones have a “Glossy Pebble” design language which means these phones will feature “a contemporary, stylish look with a curved, modern finish aimed at a younger audience.” Both devices continue LG’s popular design of moving all buttons to the back of the phone instead of the sides.
