Looks like MetroPCS is about get a new addition to their affordable Android lineup with the upcoming LG Optimus L9 headed to the now T-Mobile-owned wireless provider. We just received these leaked press shots of the device and while there is no MetroPCS branding on the device, you will noticed the familiar MetroPCS visual voicemail application on the pictured homescreen.
The LG Optimus L9 may not pack much in terms of specs, but when it comes to low-end smartphones, you could do a whole lot worse. The L9 is identical to the T-Mobile offering (aside from Metro radios, of course), with a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display, dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor, 5MP camera, 1GB of RAM, micro SD card slot, and removable 2,150mAh battery. Expect it an official announcement on availability and pricing in the coming weeks.
