So we took a closer look at the LG Optimus G earlier this morning, where that was touted to be the flagship under the LG umbrella. Well, what about those of us who are not interested in a high end handset but want something functional instead? I guess LG has heard of your requests, hence revealing the LG Optimus L9.
The LG Optimus L9 will continue where the Optimus L3, Optimus L5, and Optimus L7 left off earlier this year, where it emphasizes on premium design heritage that was developed from LG’s design leadership. Sporting a 9.1mm thin body complete with a slimming metallic streak as well as modern square style, you end up with a phone that is comfortable to hold without looking out of place. There is also the visually stunning 4.7” IPS display, a rather beefy 2,150mAh SiO+ battery, and relevant apps to get you started right out of the box.
For instance, the QTranslator function will let you translate words and whole sentences as well as phrases with a simple scan, referring from nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages. With Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, the LG Optimus L9 can also recognize letters upon scanning with the camera, while relying on electronic dictionary or online translation engine to translate words, sentences or phrases.
The 1GHz dual-core processor should be enough for most of your everyday tasks, where it will be accompanied by 1GB RAM, a 5-megapixel shooter at the back, a front-facing VGA camera, DLNA support, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice. [Press Release]
