LG Optimus 2X may see its Gingerbread update in June or July
Timely software updates may not be something for LG to brag about. That is why we cross our fingers every time we hear about one coming. Luckily, this time the word comes from a reliable source - LG's Danish website, which hints in its FAQ section that Android 2.3 Gingerbread should land on the LG Optimus 2X in June or July of this year.

In the U.S., LG's dual-core superphone may be more popular as the T-Mobile G2x, and as our loyal readers probably know, it is expected to launch next Wednesday. Hopefully, we will eventually see it being treated to an update as well, as long as T-Mobile releases Gingerbread for over-the-air download, of course.

Nevertheless, we are excited that the LG Optimus 2X may finally run Android's latest version even though older devices like the LG Optimus One might beat it to it. We will be keeping our eyes open for a solid confirmation from LG and will surely let you know if a release date gets announced.
