LG Optimus 4X HD getting Jelly Bean update in Q1 2013?
The LG Optimus 4X HD will get updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the first quarter of 2013, according to an email sent by an LG representative. The update should arrive at least to Europe at that time, and we’d guess that also means internationally. Good news is that right after receiving the update, the Optimus 4X HD will also get its bootloader unlocked.

Now, this of course is as close as it gets to an official statement by LG, but it’s not exactly 100% official so we’d reserve a shade of doubt.

Still this is more likely to happen than not, and Jelly Bean should been even more fluidity to the Optimus 4X HD with “Project Butter.” It is also bringing Google Now and actionable notifications among other changes.

The two reasons i went with the One X, after having an LG i just couldn't stand LG's late updates, and after i saw the LG's development section on xda i was shocked. No ROMs at all, it at least you guys got a stable/fast software unlike the Optimus 2X i owned.

This phone should be a no brainer to get Jellybean.

If Optimus G doesn't get JB soon I'll never buy another LG again.

Everybody's always babblin' about: I don't get this update and that. I have an S3, a One X and a 4X right now. I can tell you that the 4X is the smoothest of the 3 despite it's on 4.0.3. In everyday perfomance it beats the other two as well as in ram management. Peace.
