Starting next month, LG Electronics will release an exciting new upgrade for their smartphones. Have you ever heard of Jelly Bean? No, not the candy, it's Google's latest Android operating system.
LG Electronics is upgrading their Optimus LTE2 to Jelly Bean—Google’s latest release of the Android OS—next month and their Optimus G to Jelly Bean this December.
The Jelly Bean upgrade will offer an enhanced user experience. The smartphone's touch response speed will be greatly improved. Web browsing, screen switching, and opening app will be much snappier. The upgrade will also offer QSlide (originally introduced in the Optimus G), where the user can see two screens simultaneously.
QSlide allows users to do two tasks at the same time, such as browse the internet and check e-mail or watch a movie.
One of the special features of Jelly Bean is Google Now. Google Now enables users to get information without having to search for it. Information such as weather, traffic, are readily available when the user needs it. If the user nears a train station, the times of the next train are displayed. Users can also automatically get information about restaurant automatically as they are passing by.
The Optimus G hasn’t been released to all markets yet, and for people in the U.S., the Optimus G won’t make its debut until this fall. The Optimus G is a high-powered phone that comes with a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 4.7-inch (1280 x 768) display, and a 13 megapixel camera.
