The LG Optimus L9 II was kind of a ghost-phone. A few months ago a not very clear photo of the device showed up on the internet, along with a list of key specs and features, but that was it. Until now. A new image of the phone leaked again over the weekend suggesting that the phone would be officially introduced soon. Sure enough, the handset was announced yesterday in Netherlands. The LG Optimus L9 II completes the second generation of the L-series smartphones, following the L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II, all of which were announced earlier this year.
LG Optimus L9 II 4.7-inch Android Smartphone
Press release issued by LG confirms some of the rumored specs. As expected, the Optimus L9 II features a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display. Rumors suggested a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, however, LG neither confirmed nor denied this detail. The device is driven by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, and not the 1.2 GHz chip we heard about earlier. Type and make was not revealed, but sources speculated about a Snapdragon 400. Power is delivered by a 2150 mAh battery and the phone will come with an IR-port.
This is what we know from the official announcement. The rest remains unknown, at least officially. The phone will allegedly be equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera backside sensor illumination, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Other rumored features include 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of expandable storage. Supposedly, the LG Optimus L9 II will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
