Following hot on the heels of their Optimus G 4G quad-core handset, LG have lifted the covers off a dual-core sibling for the smartphone. The LG Optimus L9 makes its debut at this week’s IFA conference, and has been billed by Dr. Jongseok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile, as a handset made to appeal “to every consumer”.
Running Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0), it features a 1GHz dual-core processor rather than the home-made LG “L9” quad-core processor that some sources had been predicting. Housing a 4.7-inch “True-HD” IPS display, it measures a slim 9.1mm thick, with 1GB of DDR2 RAM and 4GB of storage tucked underneath the hood.
A 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera and DLNA compatibility round off the specs sheet.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but we’re expecting a September UK and US release, with a price tag fitting of the mid-range feature set on show here.
