According to LG, Optimus L9 comes with 1GHz dual-core processor and 4.7-inch IPS display. Company has however not revealed the display resolution, which is probably qHD or WVGA. The smartphone also comes with 1GB RAM, 5MP rear camera and high-density 2150 mAH SiO+ battery.
While Optimus L9 does come with the premium design elements that were taken from Prada Phone for LG, but the main focus seems to be on the software part. LG has bundled QTranslator, MY Style Keypad and QMemo apps on the smartphone.
LG claims that QTranslator instantly translates not only words, but also entire sentences and phrases with a simple scan from nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages. Using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, it recognizes letters upon scanning with the camera and utilizes electronic dictionary or online translation engine to translate words, sentences or phrases.
On the other hand, My Style Keypad adjusts the key formation of the virtual keypad depending on whether user is typing with one hand or two hands or which hands. QMemo is the note taking app, which was recently released for other L-Style series smartphones.
"The Optimus L9 is a great smartphone that appeals to every consumer. LG will continue to offer differentiated value through the Optimus L9 and strengthen our position in the smartphone market," said Dr. Jongseok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company.
Company is yet to reveal the pricing or the availability information of this smartphone.
