LG Optimus 4X HD, Optimus L9 and L7 confirmed to get Jelly Bean

LG Optimus 4X HD, Optimus L9 and L7 confirmed to get Jelly Bean
After hearing that LG’s last year flagship, the Optimus 4X HD will get bumped up to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean by the end of the first quarter of 2013, we are now hearing an official confirmation coming from LG Hong Kong saying it will be not just the 4X HD, but also the Optimus L9 and L7 that will get the update in the first half of the year.

Now, we hope LG sticks to its Q1 plan for the Optimus 4X HD, and the first half timeline applies only to the L9 and L7.

LG has already started rolling out 4.1 Jelly Bean to the LG Optimus G in South Korea, and the update should arrive soon to other markets.

I'm not really trust LG, always make a false promise... Remember the ics update for LG?

You know who should really get another chance at a nexus? Htc. Doing the nexus one right was a great leap for them :)

IMO, LG cares for their country's phone than world's phone. Cause the G is not the only phone that goes to JB for now. The LTE2 has JB even sooner than G. Meanwhile, still no words on JB for the US's G or the spectrum 2 (US's LTE2 variant)

Lg's first half of the year means next year or a false promise.

Lets do a quick jump to 2014: LG Users: "WE WANT 4.1 JELLYBEAN FOR OUR 4X HD NOOOOWWW, LG SUCKS BLA BLA BLA". Source: Former LG Optimus 2X owner (the one that got the ICS update in late 2012/ early 2013.) Thank god i steered away from the 4X and went to the One X.

LG managed to surprise me a few days ago (It would be great if they surprise people frequently) with ice cream sandwitch update for my optimus black and it is good so far.
