LG Optimus L9 expands the L Series family
I remember back in the fledgling days of the mobile phone industry, where a new model was released not every couple of months, but rather, it can sometimes take an entire year before a new model hit the market. Needless to say, things have certainly progressed at lightning fast speed these days, and we get bombarded with new smartphones left, right and center.
Well, I guess LG has decided to follow the adage, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” to the letter after looking at how the Optimus L3, Optimus L5, and Optimus L7 smartphones performed in terms of sales post release earlier this year, hence coming up with their latest addition to the L Series family, the Optimus L9.
Well, just what kind of hardware specifications and performance does the LG Optimus L9 pack underneath the hood? We are looking at a body that measures just 9.1mm thin, where it sports a slimming metallic streak as well as a modern square style which your hand will definitely find comfortable in holding.
Apart from that, there is also the vaunted largest-in-class 4.7” IPS display which is touted to deliver clear and true-to-life images complete incredible detail for comfortable viewing experience. In order to make sure that the Optimus L9 does not end up dead before the day is over, it will be equipped with a high-density 2,150mAh SiO+ battery so that you can enjoy maximum performance.
To ensure that this is truly a smartphone, the LG Optimus L9 will also come with differentiated UX features, including the QTranslator and My Style Keypad function along with the ever-popular QMemo. First of all, the new QTranslator function is a hoot to play around with, where it is touted to instantly translate words, entire sentences and phrases using a simple scan, drawing from its reservoirs of nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages.
The implementation of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology will also enable it to recognize letters upon scanning with the camera, while the integrated electronic dictionary or online translation engine are able to translate words, sentences or phrases.
No idea on when the Jelly Bean update will arrive, although it comes with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system right out of the box. The 1GHz dual-core processor should be enough to keep it running most apps decently, while 1GB RAM is accompanied by 4GB of internal memory.
