Korean version of LG G2 to get upgraded to KitKat this month
According to LG's own Korean website, the manufacturer's flagship LG G2 is expected to receive the Android 4.4 update sometime before the end of this month. The site says that a schedule will be released by the company. Back in November, LG Canada's Brand Coordination head revealed that Canadian carriers will receive the update for the LG G2 late in the first quarter of 2014.

Last week, the Facebook page belonging to LG Estonia posted a message about the LG Optimus G receiving an update that would allow the former flagship to support 4G signals in the country. Somehow, that was translated into a report that the phone was about to receive Android 4.4. LG Estonia later clarified the situation.

So it appears as though the LG G2 will be the first of the Korean manufacturer's smartphones to receive Android 4.4, as it should be. Now that we have some idea of the timing for the update in Korea and in Canada, perhaps U.S. owners of the LG G2 will receive KitKit in between those two countries. That would work out to an early to mid first quarter update in the U.S. Keep in mind that each carrier has its own testing procedures.
