LG Optimus L9 Finds A Home At T-Mobile This Fall

The LG Optimus G may be the most exciting smartphone to come from the company in a long time, and could even find itself at the heart of an upcoming Nexus-series handset. Still we shouldn’t let news of the Optimus G overshadow the rest of LG’s lineup, which includes some decent mid-range devices like the Optimus L9. We got a chance to go hands-on with the L9 back during IFA, and now it’s coming to the US, with T-Mobile announcing plans to carry the smartphone.

Don’t look for a blazing quad-core S4 here, with the L9 relegated to a more pedestrian 1GHz dual-core SoC. The rest of the phone’s specs hit the same kind of mid-range notes, like a 4.5-inch screen that’s only in a qHD resolution, or the rear camera that maxes-out at five megapixels.

The ICS-running L9 will be coming to T-Mobile sometime this fall, but the carrier’s still keeping details of the launch, including dates and pricing, to itself. If it manages to keep things cheap enough, this could be a really attractive option, especially with the handset’s nice, clean design that you don’t always find on budget-priced gear.
