Today, a new leak has surfaced regarding LG's upcoming Optimus L9 Android-based smartphone. It has been six months since LG released updated versions of its Optimus L3, L5, and L7 and now the company is poised to release an updated version of its high-end Optimus L9.
Dubbed the Optimus L9 II, the new phone is rumored to be devoid of a physical home button, favoring capacitive touch keys instead, which brings it more in line with newer Android reference designs. Additionally, the phone appears to feature an all metal chassis, which falls in line with LG's recent statements about sticking to an aluminum unibody design for upcoming devices.
Feature-wise, the Optimus L9 is said to house a 1GHz QUALCOMM Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM keeping things nice and smooth. An eight-megapixel rear camera will be present, while a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter handles the selfie duty. The phone is expected run Android 4.1.2, while a 4.7-inch screen will feature a 960 x 540 pixel resolution.
