Android 4.4 starts rolling out in Korea for the LG G2
posted by Alan F. / Dec 24, 2013, 11:40 AM
LG G2 in Canada are expected have their phone updated at the end of next year's first quarter, which includes the period from January through March. Owners of the device throughout the globe were upset a few weeks ago when it appeared that LG was updating the older LG Optimus G to Android 4.4 in Estonia. However, that turned out to be the result of a poorly worded announcement that was supposed to say that the device was being updated to support 4G in the country.
The LG G2 is certainly one of the most powerful Android handsets available now, and was named by us as one of the best smartphones in 2013. There is speculation that a mini version of the LG G2 is coming. A mysterious LG handset recently went through the GFX benchmark and there is some thought that the LG D-410 is the bite-sized version of the LG G2. If so, the device will feature a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 540 x 960 and will be powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Earlier than most? They roll out an update in one single country thats not even a major player like USA is and you praise LG? They said they will roll out the update by march 2014 for rest of the countries and I bet you by then S4 will be on 4.4

It's grandaddy the Optimus G was updated from ICS to jelly bean in short order. Companies can change. Samsung wasn't always the sparkling beacon of timely Android updates. Just like it took time for them to change their ways, so too has LG started down the path of providing updates.

I just got a white G2 on Verizon last week. Probably the single most biggest surprise phone I ever bought. It's awesome! I'd really look forward to this update but between LG and Verizon, I won't see it for 6 months at least.

Who paid who off for all this LG coverage? Although I will admit an LG device getting updated is news :-P. LGs devices have always been lackluster and their values plummet it is not a very popular brand for whatever reason, so I question why all the coverage PA is giving it...

In the meantime I picked up an LG G PAD 8.3. VERY NICE. Also using a SAMSUNG. S4. THIS IS ALSO A GREAT PHONE. Just buy the flip case from SAMSUNG that gives you the hard case on the back that is factory fit with the front having a softer material with SAMSUNG logo. This case gives the phone the weight it is lacking. Excellent phone.

Dears I'm located in Turkey and just received an android update yesterday evening. The update was 65 mbs and it was stated as an android update. The update revised 70 android applications. However the android version is still 4.2.2. I just noticed that chrome is a bit more smoother. Also the stock browser gives 730 on sunspider. Other than this everything is normal.
