However, in the camera section, the smartphone is expected to come with 8MP rear camera with LED flash and BSI sensor and 1.3MP front-facing camera as well.

LG has been putting up a good show in the smartphone arena this year. With the latest two handsets from LG, viz Optimus G Pro which comes with a premium high quality display and the recently launched LG G2, the manufacturer has been really coming up to the expectation of the LG fans. Not only that but LG has also been focusing on their mid range portfolio and has successfully launched Couple of handsets in their L series back in February. Recently, the L4 II Dual and entry-level phone L1 2 also went on sale in India.
However, the upcoming handset from LG will surely go against devices like Nexus 4, Xolo Q800 and Sony Xperia SP. Unfortunately, there is no hint on the price of Optimus L9 2 as of now.
