Right now the information is coming from a “trusted source”, so take that with a grain of salt. The LG G2 has been kind of left behind in terms of getting an Android update, unless of course you’re living in South Korea, and was starting to roll out slowly to other areas. However, plans to have Android 4.4 roll out were scheduled for the first quarter of 2014 according to various previous reports. Well, it seems that if true, the delay behind this rollout could be due to the fact LG is working on getting Android 4.4 rolled out to a large portion of its devices rather than spending time trying to make the jump to Android 4.3 and then to Android 4.4.
Right now, the models that are listed as getting the “jumped” upgrade are as follows:
- Optimus F3
- Optimus F6
- G Pro Lite
- Optimus F7
- Optimus L9 II
- Optimus Vu II
- Vu III
- G Flex
- G Pad 8.3
- LG-D315 (not yet announced officially)
- LG LS740 (not yet officially announced)
The big exception is the Optimus 4X HD which, according to the Phone Arena will be sticking to the Android 4.1.2 version, but no reason for this decision has been released.
If this is true, it definitely would make sense for LG in terms of efficiency. Why spend time upgrading some devices to Android 4.4 and others to Android 4.3 when you could just get them all up to speed at the same time?
