Does anyone remember earlier this year when LG debuted the L Series of smartphones, coming in the form of the Optimus L3, the Optimus L5, and the Optimus L7? Well, here is news for you – the latest addition to the L Series family from LG would come in the form of the LG Optimus L9, and you know for sure that this is going to be the L Series’ flagship model by all intents and purposes. The LG Optimus L9 will come with a body that measures just 9.1mm thin, sporting a metallic streak and modern square style which delivers a comfortable grip.
As for the kind of hardware which you can find underneath the hood, we are looking at a 4.7-inch IPS display, a high-density 2,150mAh SiO+ battery, a 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM, 4G of internal memory, a 5-megapixel shooter at the back and a 1.3-megapixel frotn facing camera. It has DLNA support, in addition to the new QTranslator function which is touted to instantly translate words, whole sentences and phrases using but a simple scan with its camera, where the LG Optimus L9 will then draw from its reserves of nearly 44 foreign languages to 64 user languages.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology has also been thrown into the mix, allowing it to recognize letters upon scanning with the camera, while making use of the electronic dictionary or online translation engine so that it can translate words, sentences or phrases. [Press Release]
LG Works On Nuclun 2 Chipset
LG has been rather quiet about developing its very own mobile chipset design for some time already, where the first Nuclun SoC will soon be followed up by – surprise, surprise, the Nuclun 2. This is not the first time that the Nuclun 2 name was brought up, and up till now, there has been no devices that were released with Nuclun 2 at its heart, although that might change with the upcoming V10 successor if rumors prove to be correct.
In other words, the LG V10’s successor will most probably be released some time in the second half of the coming year, which means it will be some time before it ends up as a shipping product. It also remains to be seen whether the Nuclun 3 will hit the streets in the near future, but as with most other cases, patience is definitely called for.
LG V10 Purchase Comes With 200GB MicroSD Card
So, you are thinking of upgrading your smartphone to a newer model that will be more suitable for your use, especially when it comes to storage? Well, why not take the LG V10 into consideration, as right now, LG is about to launch a new promotion that will see you be on the receiving end of a free 200GB microSD memory card, an additional 3,000mAh battery, and a battery charging cradle if you happen to bring home an LG V10 between October 30 and November 15 this year.
Of course, there are caveats to look out for. Eligibility is based on purchasing the LG V10 from a carrier, national retailer, or online dealer, and some of the qualifying retailers include the likes of AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Amazon, Best Buy, or a carrier-authorized retailer. After picking up the phone, you then have to submit details such as contact information, the purchase location of the smartphone, a snapshot of the V10 box with its accompanying IMEI number, and an upload of a legible copy of the receipt. Online submissions will have to be received by November 30, while mail-in submissions have the leeway of being received by December 7, although it needs to be postmarked by November 30.
LG V10 Comes In Gold
Well, well, what do we have here? Apparently, the recently announced LG V10 smartphone that is obviously one of the high end handsets from the South Korean manufacturer has arrived in a new shade of gold as well – which will definitely give it a far more premium look that what it would normally come in.
This is made possible thanks to the Vietnam-based company that is known as Karalux, where this particular handset has made its way to their portfolio while sporting a gold plating on the outside. According to Karalux, the entire process will take anywhere from three all the way to four non-stop working hours to complete. As the entire shell of the LG V10 happens to be made out of stainless steel, the gold-plating process is hence rather easy and quick – which is a good thing for those impatient magnates out there. The asking price for this process will be approximately $180 thereabouts – any takers?
