LG announces Android 4.1 update schedule for some phones

LG has just announced that it will start the Jelly Bean update roll-out from next month. The first LG devices to get the latest version of Android will be LG Optimus LTE II and Optimus G.

Optimus LTE II will get the update in November followed by Optimus G in December. LG has also stated that Optimus Vu and Vu II will receive Android 4.1 in the first quarter of next year.

LG was however silent on the Jelly Bean update for Optimus 4X HD or L-Style series smartphones, which were also launched earlier this year with Ice Cream Sandwich on-board.

LG has a pretty sad record for Android updates, but we hope to see that improving as company will now have early access to Android version as it has been rumoured to the maker of next Nexus phone – LG Nexus 4.

LG Nexus 4 is reportedly launching on October 29 and will be powered by Android 4.2.

    LG is one of the bad companies to give timely software update on their devices. Rather than Announcing 4.1 update schedule they should provide the schedule of the devices who havent received ICS 4.0.
    They were going to update LG optimus black in 3rd quarter for ICS 4.0. and still they are not coming forward to announce the actual date and update schedule. they just wanted to increase sales by making this type of false statement.
    This type of companies should be banned or fined for making false statement to higher their sales and doesn’t stay on their words.
    I am really disappoint to hear that google will be making their next nexus flagship mobile with LG. if they dont care about their customers than we don’t need to purchase their devices.
