LG Release Jelly Bean Update Schedule For Its Handsets
By on October 15th, 2012

LG today announced via a press release that it will soon start rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for some of its devices. LG has hardly updated its handsets to Ice Cream Sandwich, with only the Korean version of the Optimus 2X tasting Android 4.0 until now.

The first handset from LG to receive the Jelly Bean update will be the Optimus LTE II. The handset should taste Jelly Bean next month, but LG is known to delay its Android OS updates, so don’t get your hopes too high. Second in the list is the LG Optimus G, which should taste Jelly Bean sometime in December.

Last, and hopefully not the least, are the Optimus Vu and Vu II devices. LG will update them to Jelly Bean sometime in the Q1 of next year, which shows how slow the company is in rolling out updates for its high-end devices.

Surprisingly, the LG Optimus 4X HD was missing from LG’s press release, which is shocking considering the handset was the Korean maker’s flagship handset for sometime in 2012. If the list is anything to go by, it looks like LG won’t be updating any of its 2011 handsets to Jelly Bean including the Optimus 2X and the Nitro HD.

The Jelly Bean update will bring with it Google Now, minor UI tweaks, Project Butter along with some new apps from LG including Q Slide.
