Android Ice Cream Sandwich coming to LG phones
LG has promised updates of Android Ice Cream Sandwich to their top-tier phones, but will they fail to meet the mark again as they had with Android Gingerbread? Read on to find out which of your phones will be blessed with the new OS.
A good number of smartphones from the LG Optimus series released in 2011 have been promised upgrades to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). The release dates of the updates are not known yet, but the Korean company has said that they will unveil their upgrade schedule by December, along with a list of additional phones that will be receiving the new OS.
Amongst the family of Android elite models, it was mentioned that the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE will be graced by the highly anticipated software from Google. LG will also follow up with updates for as many phones as they can, which is good news for owners of older phones. LG’s Facebook page mentions: “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.”
These are big promises to be kept, as the owner responses following the annoncement show that previous update cycles of Android Gingerbread for many of their phones are either slow or lacking. Hopefully, LG would take this opportunity to fulfil their promises and regain more customer confidence.
