Unveiled back in August, a few days ahead of IFA 2012 trade fair, LG Optimus L9 has yet to make its entrance on the market.
Although it’s not among the best-featured Android smartphones out there, the Optimus L9 comes with several neat features such as QuickMemo and Quick Translator.
Well, it appears that T-Mobile USA customers will be among the first ones able to purchase the LG Optimus L9
The folks over at EVLeaks
have just leaked the first press photo of the Optimus L9 with T-Mobile USA’s logo etched to it.
Even though the source of the leak does not reveal any details on the phone’s exact release date or pricing options, we expect the carrier to come forward with an official statement pretty soon.
Expect LG Optimus L9 to be shipped with Android 4.0.4
Ice Cream Sandwich operating system onboard. It will be interesting to see if LG has any plans to offer an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the future.
Hardware-wise, the Optimus L9 does pretty well, though it’s not as impressive as the Optimus G. The phone is equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz and packs 1GB of RAM.
There are only 4GB of internal memory available, but users will be able to further expand it up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Unusual for a mid-tier device, the LG Optimus L9 sports a large 4.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display, though it only comes with 540 x 960 pixels resolution.
Another strong point of the handset is the high-capacity 2150 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
Last but not least, LG Optimus L9 features a 5-megapixel rear photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and video recording, as well as a secondary VGA camera for video calls.
