LG Optimus 2X to get Ice Cream Sandwich in Q3

LG Optimus 2X to get Ice Cream Sandwich in Q3
That the LG Optimus 2X is going to get Ice Cream Sandwich eventually is something that we know already. After all, the company itself made the announcement of an upcoming ICS update quite a while ago. However, we didn't have much information as to when the said update was going to be released... until today.

As stated by LG Mobile Singapore on Facebook, the LG Optimus 2X Android 4.0 update will start rolling out in Q3 of this year. In other words, there will be no Ice Cream Sandwich for LG Optimus 2X owners for at least another one and a half to three and a half months. Or at least not for those located in Singapore and the surrounding markets.

So there you go, folks: more evidence confirming that Android 4.0 updates can be painfully slow.

Thanks for sending this in!


No ICS for the LG Optimus 2X until Q3 of this year

Well that isn't so bad. Motorola Singapore says that they have no plans to upgrade the Singapore Atrix and that it will remain on 2.3.4. Not only will we not see ICS, we will not even get the 2.3.6 bugfix update.

Its not only LG all the android manufactures are slow on ICS. Samsung had updated s2 and Note in a handful of countires. Sony,HTC ,Moto etc may have updated one or two handset.
I think we will get android 5.0 update sooner then ICS.
ICS might not get marketshare above gingerbread.

In third quarter instead of ICS update, LG will release a statement that 'hardware of LG optimus 2x is incapable of running ICS, but keeping in mind the interest of so many users of 2x we will release Feature pack, which will bring some of the features of ICS to 2x', sorry for inconvenience to our customers'................

Hey guys chill down, this isn't official statement from LG, so hold yourself from pressing that red button, and save all your red thumbs for the official statement from LG, which will be out by next quarter........... :)

"another one and a half to three and a half months" probably closer to three and a half.

What does this mean for the G2X ICS update?

LG want to be cutting edge with there hardware, releasing the first dual core phone ect. but need to realise it takes more than that. You have to support the products well too!!!
If your going to be first to release something you need to be first to upgrade it... or definately not last.
