LG’s 4.5-inch midrange smartphone, the Optimus L9, is coming to T-Mobile sometime this fall.
The new LG Optimus L9 features a 4.5-inch qHD (960×540 resolution) display in a slim 0.36-inch thick (9.144mm, about the same thickness as the iPhone 4S design). The Optimus L9 uses a 1GHz dual-core processor, and has a 5MP rear-facing camera that can shoot 1080p video.
When the LG Optimus L9 ships, it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and we hope a Jelly Bean upgrade is in the works, but we don’t know just yet. The phone will use LG’s own Android skin, which looks a bit like TouchWiz on the home screen. The only pre-installed software of now is LG QuickMemo which is a quick and easy way to take notes.
While the phone lacks 4G LTE because it is on T-Mobile, it does have one distinguishing feature. The LG Optimus L9 supports Wi-Fi Calling so users can place a call over their Wi-Fi network instead of relying on the T-Mobile network. It’s a great feature for users who have great T-Mobile coverage in their area, but weak signal in their home.
Like most smartphones we’ve seen recently, the LG Optimus L9 lacks a price and a release date. We know the phone will come to market sometime this fall, which gives T-Mobile until December 21 to put the phone on sale. We assume the phone will cost less than similarly sized phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III.
T-Mobile sells the Galaxy S III for $199, so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if the LG Optimus L9 sells for about $100.
