LG K9: Plans | Pricing | Specs


  • Display

    5 inches


  • Storage


  • Battery size

    2,500 mAh

The LG K9 isn't a fancy phone, but it is a highly affordable one.

The budget space for mobile phones has entries from most of the major manufacturers, but it's an area where South Korean manufacturer LG has been busy for years, producing phones both under its own name and rebadged for numerous telcos. The LG K9 is a low-cost phone available outright or through Telstra as a prepaid handset.


  • 5-inch display
  • Non-slip rear cover
  • Headphone jack


  • Simple rear and front cameras


  • Snapdragon 210 provides low power
  • Only 16GB of onboard storage


  • 2500mAh battery
  • Removable battery

Pricing and availability

  • The LG K9 retails in Australia for $179
  • It's also available as a prepaid phone through Telstra


Simple and affordable

The LG K9 offers the basics you need from a smartphone at a price you can afford.


The LG K9 is very much priced to sell to a market that doesn't want to – or can't afford to – spend that much on a handset. Its Australian pricing at $179 puts it into direct competition with phones such as the Nokia 2.1, or, if you were looking at purely Telstra prepaid handsets, the Telstra Superior.
