Prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile announced today that it will begin selling the LG Optimus F3 for $179.99.

Already available for free under contract with Sprint, the 4G LTE device is equipped with a 4-inch IPS touch screen and ships with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

The handset also features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a VGA front-facing camera, and a swift 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

I recently took a look at Sprint's Optimus F3 and was particularly impressed by its long-lasting 2,460mAh battery, which has a reported talk time of 16 hours.

Additional features include NFC, the ability to record 1080p full-HD video, and a microSD card slot that accepts cards with capacities up to 32GB.
