Among all the major Android OEM manufacturers, LG has been the slowest in bringing Ice Cream Sandwich update to its handset. The Korean company has just started rolling out the ICS update for the LG Nitro HD, while its other previous-gen droid handsets patiently wait for their turn.
LG had earlier released a list of handsets that it will be updating to Ice Cream Sandwich, which included the Optimus 2X and the Optimus Black. Sadly, LG Canada has annouced via its Twitter account that it won’t be bringing ICS to the Optimus 2X and the Optimus Black.
The Optimus 2X was the first dual-core toting handset to be released to the world, but the company’s poor software support essentially made it a failure. It is nothing but shameful to see a dual-core phone not getting the Ice Cream Sandwich update. On the other hand, the Optimus Black packs similar internals as the Nexus S, which recently got its Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update. The Korean company definitely needs to hire some better developers!
Considering LG’s statement that the “original upgrade announcement was a general statement issued from the HQ”, don’t be surprised if the company shelves the ICS update for its other handsets.
