Recently, GizBot reported about LG working on their upcoming device Nexus 5 but now it is more exciting to see more of LG as there was a leak online which suggested the new version of Optimus L9 likely to be called Optimus L9 2. LG has a long series of "L" devices viz. Optimus L3 2, L5 2, and L7 2 which are already available in the market. Now rumors are that L4 would also join the L series soon in the coming month or year.
Another LG device Optimus G2 also had been spotted online. The image of the device was first leaked by evleaks a month ago. Back then the leak carried very little information and specs about the device. Now again the device has been surfaced with another photo and GSMArena reports say that the early device could have had some software issue and a error screen advising beta testers. This however doesn't confirm the 5 inch 1080pixels display or the processor on which the device would run.
LG has gained a big time reputation in the android market. Devices with high end pricing from LG such as Optimus G, Nexus 4, and Optimus G Pro of course have the best specs. It would be rather surprising to actually realize that LG gained more popularity not only because of these high end devices but mostly because of the mid range priced devices which include all devices in L series.
Techtastic also noticed the missing Optimus L9 2 during the mobile world congress back in February while they showcased their second-generation Optimus F5 and F7.
However Optimus L9 2 was spotted in a benchmark and a leak of the image showing the upper portion of the device. It is expected that Optimus L9 2 is apparently going to be announced in June.
The image actually doesn't reveal anything, but the benchmark results supposedly does. Reports suggest that Optimus L9 2 would have a 4.7 inch 720p HD IPS touchscreen, a 1.4 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1 GB of RAM. It would run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with LG's UI on top. Other information about the device has not been mentioned so far. However it may be expected to hit the market soon.
Techtastic reports also said that Optimus L9 2 will be announced next month. Looking at the above mentioned expected features of Optimus L9 2, this device may have a good competition among HTC One or Galaxy S4 as this device is also expected to come in with a decent price.
