Earlier this year, LG announced three L-Series phones, the LG Optimus L3, L5 and L7 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012 in Barcelona. Now, the company went ahead and announced another handset in the L-Series range of smartphones, the LG Optimus L9. This handset will be showcased at the upcoming IFA 2012 event in Berlin. Sadly, the Optimus L9 will be shipped with the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System, instead of the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS.
Dr. Jongseok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company, said:
“The Optimus L9 is a great smartphone that appeals to every consumer. LG will continue to offer differentiated value through the Optimus L9 and strengthen our position in the smartphone market.”
LG Optimus L9 features a 4.7 inch IPS display, 1 GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS, 5 megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera for video calls, 1 GB RAM, 4 GB expandable memory, MicroSD card slot, 32 GB expandable memory, Wi-Fi 801.11 b/g/n, 3G Connectivity, DLNA, QMemo, QTranslator, Google Play Store and a 2150 mAh battery. This handset measures 131.9 x 68.2 x 9.1 mm and weighs 125 grams.
LG Optimus L9 comes with the QTranslator function which translates words, sentences and phrases with a simple scan from nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages. This handset will also include the QMemo, which allows the users to capture, save and share their ideas with others using their fingertip or handwriting. LG Optimus L will go on sale from next month in Europe, followed by North America, Asia and Latin America. The price of this handset has not been announced yet.
