LG Electronics on Wednesday announced the newest addition to its L-Style series - Optimus L9. The Android 4.0-based smartphone will join the line of Optimus L3, L5, and L7 smartphones which the company announced earlier this year.

"The Optimus L9 is a great Smartphone that appeals to every consumer. LG will continue to offer differentiated value through the Optimus L9 and strengthen our position in the Smartphone market," said Dr Jongseok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company.

The all new Optimus L9 is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and sports a 9.1mm slim body with a 4.7-inch IPS display. The smartphone also features 1GB DDR2 RAM and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. Details of the device's screen resolution are yet to be reveled.

In a press statement on the Optimus L9, the company said "Inheriting LG's premium L-Style design philosophy, the Optimus L9 has a 9.1mm thin body with a slimming metallic streak and modern square style that offers a comfortable grip from its slim and stylish design."

The company introduced the latest version of L series with a few software applications which include QTranslator and My Style Keypad. QTranslator uses optical character recognition technology to translate from nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages.

LG is yet to reveal the price and the market availability of its latest addition to the L-series. Reports indicated that the Optimus L9 may likely make its presence felt at the IFA 2012 consumer-electronics trade show in Berlin this week.
