LG Optimus L9 II unveiled in the Netherlands

When LG first announced the second generation of its Optimus L series at the Mobile World Congress in February, it was one smartphone short, the L9, which was released around Halloween of 2012. Now the largest member of the group has resurfaced in the Netherlands where LG has announced the Optimus L9 II.

T-Mobile LG Optimus L9 Jelly Bean update paused

Jelly Bean began rolling out for T-Mobile users with an LG Optimus L9 a few weeks earlier. As of today however, that update has since been placed on pause. The details are coming by way of T-Mobile, who have said the update was placed on pause by LG. The silver lining here is the use of the word pause. Of course, we suspect those still rocking Ice Cream Sandwich may be a bit disappointed.

Several of the Android smartphones from LG were presented with iF product design awards for 2013.

LG readying Jelly Bean for the Optimus 4X HD, L9 and L7 smartphones

LG recently began teasing in advance of Mobile World Congress and while we wait to see what they have planned for the show, it looks like they have also started teasing some current device owners with an update.

The details are still at a minimum, however if you happen to be carrying any of those three devices -- an update is in the works.

LG Optimus L9 Review

LG has certainly been on a roll recently. They made Google's newest Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 4, and they released their new flagship device, the Optimus G, just recently on AT&T. However, LG isn't just about the high-end game. They came out with a set of mid-range Optimus devices throughout the summer, and their latest one is the Optimus L9, which was released through T-Mobile on Halloween. We ended up getting our hands on one and decided to run it through its paces to see if it's worthy of the $79.99 price tag. Let's see how it fared.

LG Optimus L9 now available at T-Mobile

Just a heads up if you've been waiting to get your hands on the LG Optimus L9 - the new handset has officially launched at T-Mobile. The L9 doesn't fetch too steep a price, which makes it a good choice for those who need a decent handset on the cheap. Make no mistake, the L9 isn't going to be burning up the benchmarks, but it should be a suitable device for those who don't need to have the latest and greatest.
