T-Mobile G2X Gets The Android 2.3.4 Update

Last year, T-Mobile announced the LG G2X smartphone at the CTIA 2011. It is basically the T-Mobile’s version of the popular LG Optimus 2X. This handset originally runs on the Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. However, the device was later updated to the Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) OS in July 2011. Sadly, the update was pulled, added back and then pulled again.

Now, T-Mobile is rolling out a new update for the LG G2X smartphone. The latest update bumps the LG G2X to Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) Operating System. This update will be available automatically via OTA (Over-The-Air) or you can even manually update it via LG’s website. It comes with Wi-Fi calling improvements, boot up fixes and more. Check out the complete changelog below.
