Apple may have snuffed T-Mobile out of the iPhone 5, but the wireless carrier hasn't taken it lying down as last week it announced a deal to buy MetroPCS and Monday revealed a new addition to its listings: the LG Optimus L9.
This dual-core device comes set with Android 4.0: Ice Cream Sandwich and a 4.5-inch qHD Corning Gorilla Glass 2 Display (just try to crack it).
According to a press release, the L9 drops this fall.
Lovin' for the L9
T-Mobile is clearly enamored with the product, playing up its "sleek, stylish design and slim profile," surrounded by a "premium metal trim to provide designer-level styling."
LG put a 1GHz processor in the L9 while also embedding a 5MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD recording capabilities. It can even capture a photo and video at the same time.
One nifty photo feature is the "Cheese Shot," which lets users take a pic simply by saying, "Cheese."
Note taking is also a breeze thanks to the LG QuickMemo feature, which lets users add commentary, notes and drawings of their own design to screenshots "with a few swipes of the finger."
The battery is a durable 2,150mAh while Wi-Fi calling allows for making rings with little to no coverage (like in a basement, the companies offer).
No word yet on pricing.
