We've just had the chance to see LG's largest L-Style phone to-date: the 4.7-inch Optimus L9. Just like the rest of the L-Style series of devices, the L9 skips high-end internals and focuses on a look that won't hurt your — ahem — style. The phone has a still-unspecified 1GHz dual-core processor, as well as 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0. That 4.7-inch screen is only graced by a qHD (960 x 540) resolution, and that looks to be the ultimate detractor from this device — a resolution like that on a display of this size simply won't do in late 2012.
Beyond internals, the look of the L9 is only skin-deep. While it may appear to be a high-class phone from afar, once you pick it up the plastic faux aluminum bezel and plastic back will tell you otherwise. Speaking of the back, on the white unit it refused to clip into place, though that's likely due to tradeshow wear. Of course, LG has once again seen fit to skin Android 4.0, and it's not one of the better ones that we've seen. Vodafone Germany has told us that it expects the device to be on shelves in Germany this month or next, and LG is setting the MSRP at €299.
