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.

Engadget reports that the LG Optimus L9 has recently appeared at the FCC for radio frequency testing. This is a strong clue that, unless something goes wrong, customers may finally see the first appearance of an L-series phone in the USA. It may not have the specs of the LG Optimus G, but it’s no slouch either.

The device has more than its attractive looks going for it, with a dual-core 1GHZ processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 4.7 inch IPS screen. The L9 is powered by a 2,150 mAh battery and has a 5 megapixel camera and 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera.

The LG Optimus L9 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with a few extra apps. LG has included a new keyboard design they call the My Style Keypad, which allows users to adjust key placement for typing with one or two hands. The phone also ships with  the OCR translation app, QTranslator, supporting 44 languages.

So, is anyone excited for the Optimus L9, or are you holding out for something more powerful?
