LG is taking the super-thin Optimus L9 smartphone to T-Mobile, with the 4.5-inch screen smartphone coming "this fall."
The carrier did not share pricing information, or exactly what date the phone will ship.
The L9 is on the sleek side, measuring 0.36-inches thin. Compare that to the Samsung Galaxy S III at 0.34 inches and the iPhone 5 at 0.30 inch.
The "L" line from LG is designed around "five primary aesthetic elements," T-Mobile says in a press release. There's a "Modern Square Style for comfortable grip, Floating Mass Technology for a slimmer look, Seamless Layout for a more intuitive arrangement of keys, Harmonized Design Contrast utilizing metallic accents and Sensuous Slim Shape that naturally draws the user’s attention."
The Optimus L9 will ship with Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. (Google-watchers will note that this is not the latest version of Android; that would be 4.1, aka Jelly Bean.)
