LG has been busy concentrating on its high end handset range over the past few months. It started off with the LG Optimus G Pro phablet and they soon followed it up with the flagship LG G2 earlier this month. Looks like LG has now found finally found time to look back at its mid level handset range. While they have not done that officially yet, eagle eyed folks from over at TheUnLockr seem to have come across leaked images of a device that is being said to be the Optimus L9 II.
The L9 II as you might have guessed by now is a successor to the L9 and is expected to see officialdom in the next few weeks. The leaked images show a handset that has more than passing resemblance to its older sibling – except for a glaring omission in the lack of a physical Home button. LG seems to have opted for a capacitive button this time round.
While it is unclear as to what kind of hardware would go inside this, it is believed that the L9 II will run a Qualcomm MSM8230 Snapdragon S4 chipset. This houses a dual-core 1GHz Krait processor and the tried and tested Adreno 305 graphics chip. To top this all, we have ample 1GB worth of RAM which should ensure a not too laggy user experience.
Other tech specs include an 8-megapixel main camera coupled to a 1.4 megapixel front shooter. The device should get 8 GB of internal memory which you can expand using micro SD cards. A 2150 mAH battery should power this phone for almost an entire working day
As expected, the device will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will be upgradeable to 4.3 as well as when when it arrives for LG.
