lg-l9-ii

While most of our attention is turned towards the LG G2, that’s far from the only new device that the company has in the pipeline. Back in June we reported that the LG L9 II had been spotted in benchmarks and had even shown off for the camera in a leaked image. Now it’s official, the LG L9 II is on its way.

So what can we expect from the budget device? The upcoming handset has a 720p 4.7-inch TrueIPS display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. Some of the other specs include an 8MP shooter, 8GB storage, microSD for expansion, a 2150 mAh battery and an IR Blaster. As for the OS, you get Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Unfortunately, we don’t yet have an exact release date or pricing for the LG L9 II. Heck, we don’t even a clue what countries the device will be available in. We aren’t completely left in the dark though, as we do know the mid-range handset is coming sometime in October.

The LG L9 II might not scream innovation or excitement, but it is a solid upgrade from the original L9 and could be the perfect device for those looking for a decent phone on a budget.
