While all eyes are still on the company’s recently unveiled G2 flagship, LG is poised to fill out the second-generation of its mid-range L-series, preparing a sequel to last year’s Optimus L9. Like last year, the Optimus L9 II will follow its linemates (L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II) by several months, delivering the most robust feature set of the bunch.
Powered by a dual-core, 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 MSM8320 SoC from Qualcomm (Adreno 305 graphics), L9 II should ship with a 4.7-inch, 720p display. Also on board: 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal, expandable storage, dual eight-megapixel/1.3-megapixel rear and front-facing cameras, and a 2150mAh battery. The main camera supposedly features backside sensor illumination, and the handset itself is tipped to run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Probably launches before the end of the month.
