All of these handsets held something "first" in their description when they launched this year, so it's only fair they will be given the ICS treatment by LG. The Optimus 2X was the first dual-core handset, the Optimus 3D the first with a parallax barrier screen and dual-channel memory, the Optimus Black held the "brightest screen" title for a while with its 700 nits, and the LG Optimus LTE was the first handset to be announced with an HD display and 4G LTE connectivity.
These "firsts" didn't translate into big sales for LG this year, but it takes time to bend customer perceptions, and quick upgrades to the newest version of Android is just what the doctors order in these circumstances. Good news is that other LG handsets might also get the ICS update after a functionality review, and the update schedule will be up in December so each owner knows when to expect the goods. Here's the full release:
In December this year, the forthcoming upgrade schedule and additional specific models for the ICS OS upgrade will be posted on our LG Mobile Global Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LGMobile) and on our local LG websites. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.
Does this mean that the upcoming LG Nitro HD for AT&T we got a picture of recently will get an ICS update later on, or come directly with the latest Android onboard? December 1 might tell.
