On the software front, the LG Optimus L9 includes some new features such as the QTranslator, which can translate an entire sentence to any of the 64 supported languages. The Phone makes use of the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, and thus is able to recognize words as it scans them with the camera. Then, it uses various electronic dictionaries to translate the given words or sentences.
The L9's MyStyle keypad makes typing convenient for users as it can adjust itself when the user types through one hand or both the hands, by rearranging the keys accordingly.
Globally, LG is facing the ire of users over it's pricing of LG Google Nexus 4. The users are fuming over rumors that LG may offer the Nexus 4 at double the price it currently sells for in the US, in the countries which do not support buying the phone on Google Play store.
But the company itself is quite happy over the response it is receiving for it's latest upcoming Android Flagship device, the LG Optimus G.
