It looks like the rumored LG Optimus L9 II smartphone is pretty real. Several months ago, a spy photo of it was leaked on the internet, along with a handful of hardware specs, and now we've come across a clearer image exposing the front and back sides of the device. And while today's leak doesn't add much to what we already know about the handset, it boosts the chances of it being made official in the very near future.
Once it is unveiled, the LG Optimus L9 II (or LG L9 II, perhaps?) will become the top smartphone in LG's second-gen L-series. It will sport a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, which sounds pretty good for what's surely going to be a mid-range handset. A dual-core Qualcomm SoC is also in play, most likely a Snapdragon 400, paired with 1GB of RAM. Further specs include an 8MP main camera, 1.3MP front-facing one, 8GB of storage, microSD card slot, 2150mAh battery, and Android 4.1.2 out of the box. Overall, a pretty solid package given the smartphone's class.
While we aren't sure when the LG Optimus L9 II will be announced, chances are the company might make it official in time for the IFA 2013 expo in Berlin.
