LG Optimus 3D Gets The Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread Update At Rogers

Last year, LG announced its first 3D smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D at the CES 2011 in Las Vegas. This handset was shipped with the old Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System. The international SIM-free version of this handset has already received the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update. However, the owners of some carrier-specific variants are still waiting for this update. Rogers and LG recently started rolling out the Android 2.3.5 update for the Rogers’ Optimus 3D variant in Canada. Check out the complete changelog below.
