LG's latest phone in the L series, the LG Optimus L9 was announced last month. Now, if a recent appearance at the FCC is any clue, it appears that the stylish phone may be headed to the USA.

Sony Xperia T gets FCC approval, possibly heading to T-Mobile
Despite some mess up with the date, news about the UK release of Sony Xperia T have been flooding in since the flagship phone was unveiled late last month, which may have to do with the fact that it’s going to be James Bond’s choice of communication device. But what of those in North America who have been scanning the papers for hints of its debut in the country? Worry not, because FCC got your back.
HTC One X+ hits the FCC, features quad-core Nvidia processor
Last week Android Authority reported on the news that a revised model of the HTC One X was in works. The rumor for the so-called “One X+” came from a series of tweets from @Football4PDA, someone who has been known to leak accurate info about HTC in the past. The tweets shed some light on what kind of specs we'd find in the device, such as the NVIDIA AP37 quad-core CPU at 1.6GHz. Besides the CPU, the device would offer 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE, a 1800mAh battery and Jelly Bean with HTC Sense UI 4.5.

ZTE V8000 gets FCC certification, on its way to Cricket with ICS and WVGA display
Up-and-coming prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless seems to really be on a roll. On top the launch of Cricket-powered RadioShack Wireless last week, Cricket has also launched its own version of the HTC One V, which has now become the most powerful Android smartphone in its portfolio. That doesn’t seem to be enough for Cricket though, and another enticing Android mid-ranger is heading to the nation’s eighth largest carrier. We first spotted the ZTE Nova 4.0 V8000 back in May at the CTIA, and, just as we suspected, this will be a Cricket exclusive phone.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 gets cleared by the FCC without US LTE bands

FCC planning to auction off additional UHF spectrum to mobile carriers
Mobile broadband is on the rise, but with carriers trying to offer better and faster services, there is a resource that might go scarce soon: radio spectrum allocation. Most technologies today can support the network load through code-division, which lets data and voice packets share the same space. However, as the need for "ubiquitous mobile Internet coverage" arises, the FCC feels the need to be proactive in allocating for these resources as demand grows.
