The average range is probably the most benefits provide manufacturers, so it is vital to present competitive devices in the market. For this, LG has introduced the LG Optimus L9 II, the second generation of the well known Optimus L9.
Just weeks after introducing its new flagship, the LG G2, the Asian company has decided to unveil the LG Optimus L9 II, the second generation of the popular LG Optimus L9 presented the past 2012 and that such good results the manufacturer has provided these months thanks to its low price, both in free modality as subsidized by operator. So, with this LG Optimus L9 II, the company aims to repeat and exceed that success with renovated technical characteristics and price quite similar.
The hardware of the LG Optimus L9 II is composed of a dual-core processor at 1.4GHz (do not know the specific manufacturer and model of the SoC), 2150mAh battery, 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front camera, 4.7inch True HD IPS display (same as the Nexus 4) and an infrared port to use the phone as a remote control (like HTC One, Galaxy S4, LG G2 … etc.). That is, a mid-range hardware very similar to that found in smartphones such as Moto X, HTC One Mini and Galaxy S4 Mini.
In terms of design, the front reminds a lot to LG Optimus G, because it has the same capacitive buttons, is quite similar in size and, in general, lines are quite similar. That yes, in the back the thing changes and LG has opted for something more than the LG G2 style, with a slightly curved plastic back on the edges (the LG Optimus G had a flat rear glass).
As for pricing and availability, LG has not yet ruled on the matter, but probably will go on sale next October in major markets (Europe and the U.S. part). Regarding prices, we hope to stay at around USD$350/€350, a figure that this LG Optimus L9 II could be, like its predecessor, a success for the manufacturer.
