Korean giant LG which recently revealed its G2 flagship Android Smartphone is preparing another L-series II Smartphone dubbed Optimus L9 II for launch in the upcoming days. The Smartphone will join LG’s L-series II Smartphones family members Optimus L1 II, L3 II, L4 II, L5 II and L7 II. It is likely to be announced in a couple of days, possibly before the end of August, but this is just a speculation.
According to a report by The Unlockr, LG Optimus L9 II will come with a 4.7 inch 720p HD display and will pack 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8320 processor with Adreno 305 GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, Micro SD card slot, 8 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front facing camera. The Smartphone will be backed up by a 2150 mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS.
It is strange that the Smartphone’s name still carries ‘Optimus’ branding. LG has previously announced that it will get rid of the Optimus branding in all its future devices. It was also confirmed in the name of LG’s flagship handset LG G2 and is likely to be followed in its upcoming LG G Pad tablet and LG Vu 3 phablet. However, its L-series still finds it difficult to get rid of the Optimus brand name. It will be confirmed once the Smartphone is officially revealed, so take everything with a pinch of salt.
In related news, upcoming LG Android tablet LG G Pad will come with a Snapdragon 600 processor and will support only Wi-Fi. According to Korean website News Tomato, LG G Pad will feature a quad core Snapdragon 600 processor instead of the previously rumored quad core Snapdragon 800 processor. The site cited LG sources and also added that there will be two versions based on connectivity- LTE and Wi-Fi only version, which will be sold by Verizon in US and in Korean market respectively. There won’t be any 3G/HSPA based variant.
LG G Pad was previously spotted in Bluetooth SIG and later on confirmed by an LG executive. The Bluetooth SIG listing hints at two variants – a Wi-Fi variant and a 3G or LTE enabled variant. The tablet is likely to have an 8.3 inch WXUGA display with 1920×1200 pixel resolution. It is expected to be unveiled at IFA 2013 in Berlin and will start shipping by the end of September.
