 LG Optimus L9 Available now
29th August 2012

The LG Optimus L9 is the new flagship handset in LG's "L-Style" range of Android phones that are designed to look expensive, but aren't.

This is an attractive but somewhat generic looking device on the surface with a large 4.7" display of unknown resolution. Inside is a dual core 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash memory (presumably there is also a microSD slot although this isn't stated). On the back is a 5 megapixel camera plus a 0.3 megapixel one on the front. Inside is a large 2150 mAh battery, and the Optimus L9 runs Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich".

Because this is an Android smartphone then it has GPS, 3.5G support, WiFi and Bluetooth. LG have added some software enhancements including a translation application that uses optical character recognition (OCR) technology to scan and translate printed documents plus a few other enhancements besides that.

This is a pretty high-end device, although other L-Style devices have not been very expensive, so we expect to see the Optimus L9 being quite an affordable option for those looking for a powerful smartphone.

LG haven't said when the Optimus L7 will be available or how much it will cost, but our guess is that we will see it during Q4 2012 for around €400 at launch.
