LG Optimus L9 Officially Coming to T-Mobile ‘this fall’

Last week’s leak that hinted on T-Mobile adding the LG Optimus L9 to its lineup of mid-range smartphones has come true, it is happening.  T-Mobile has officially announced that the 4.5 incher will be available on the network come fall.  Although neither the exact price nor the ETA was not mentioned in the press release, the stiff competition in the smartphone industry is likely to make it budget friendly.

T-Mobile markets the L9 as a sleek, stylish and powerful smartphone boasting of a long lasting battery, superior 4G experience and a 4.5 inch qHD display.  This phone is a combination of the stylish and popular features of the L- series phones including the L3, L5 and L7 that were released earlier in the year.  All these phones were designed around 5 primary aesthetic features: Floating Mass Technology that gives them a slimmer look; Modern Square Style which makes them comfortable to grip; Harmonized Design Contrast from metallic accents; Sensuous Slim Shape that appeals to most users and a Seamless layout which makes it more user friendly.
