|Subject: LG confirms Android 4.0 ICS update for its Optimus devices Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:18 pm|| |
Days after it announced roll-out of Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for its Optimus devices, LG has divulged some more details about the much-awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for its smartphones. LG has confirmed that its high-end smartphones namely Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE will receive the ICS update.
"We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible," the company said on its Facebook page. LG further says it will soon post a schedule of the upgrade and details about other phones that may receive the ICS on its official Facebook page and websites.
The announcement comes weeks after LG denied rumors that it will not be providing the ICS update for the LG Optimus 2X. “These rumors are NOT true. LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google,” the company said on its Facebook page.
It may be recalled that Samsung and Sony Ericsson both have announced the ICS update for their Galaxy S II and Xperia devices respectively. However, the first device to receive Ice Cream Sandwich will be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which was released earlier this month. Though there's no official word on the launch date, the device is expected to be launched the U.S. on December 8.
