Android 4.4 starts rolling out in Korea for the LG G2

Android 4.4 starts rolling out in Korea for the LG G2
Earlier this month, LG's own Korean website revealed that the Android 4.4 update was going to be pushed out to LG G2 units in the country, some time this month. Well, "some time" is today. As an early holiday gift to some Koreans toting LG's flagship Android model, KitKat is being sent out OTA. According to one report from inside the country, Korean carrier KT is sending out the update sequentially. The report failed to mention whether the mobile operator is looking at model numbers, date of purchase, or another piece of data to determine the order in which the update is sent out. The update weighs in at 637.39MB.

Owners of the 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.
