Boost Mobile Launches LG's K7 As Tribute 5
Boost Mobile, which is also widely known as one of Sprint's prepaid brands, has just added a new affordable smartphone in its selections. The new device is dubbed as LG Tribute 5, but unbeknownst to many, it's actually the recently announced K7.
The news comes weeks after the LG K7 made its worldwide debut. According to the South Korean tech giant, devices that belong in the K series are handsets that feature decent design and hardware specifications without the lofty price tags that usually come with flagships and other smartphones in the company's venerable G series.
As far as the specifications go, the LG Tribute 5 doesn't really pack that much horsepower. Instead, it's equipped with hardware that's seen in other entry-level to midrange offerings of today. First off, it features a 5-inch IPS touchscreen display with a 480 x 854 resolution. While that may translate to a smaller pixel density, it would be ample for a display of its size. Under its hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset that comes with a 1.1 GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that's expandable via microSD card slot. For its photography prowess, LG Tribute 5 is fitted with 5MP cameras on both the front and back.
Although LG Tribute 5 lacks in horsepower, it makes up for it in the field of connectivity. It comes with 4G LTE support so users can expect faster Internet speeds while they are on the go. For its longevity, there's a 2,125 mAh of battery powering it. Last but not least, it's shipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop, which appears to be the standard operating system for smartphones that are being released today.
Those who are interested in LG Tribute 5 can pick one up from Boost Mobile for only US$99.99 off-contract. Users can also pair it with a plan that provides unlimited talk and text and 2GB of data for US$30 per month.

It is expected that with the facilitated access to improved, quicker and cheaper sequencing and other omics technologies, the number of well-characterized accessions and the amount of detailed information that needs to be stored along with the biological material will be growing rapidly and continuously.
