LG Optimus G gets Android 4.4 in Estonia

LG Optimus G gets Android 4.4 in Estonia
Back in October, LG France suffered from "loose lips syndrome" and accidentally passed along the word that the LG Optimus G was going to receive the Android 4.4 update as early as October. The preposterous sounding tongue-slip seemed to be a bogus statement because Android 4.4 didn't launch until after October 31st. But as it turns out, the LG Optimus G was indeed one of the first devices to receive KitKat...in Estonia. And this news comes courtesy of LG's own Facebook page in that nation.

Today, the Android 4.4 update has started rolling out to the LG model in the Baltic state. In addition, the update is available only to those LG Optimus G users who are customers of Elisa, the second largest carrier in that country. It is a bit nutty, considering that the much more highly spec'd LG G2 remains stuck on Android 4.2.2.

The million dollar question is whether this update will spread. First, throughout Estonia's other carriers, then through the entire Baltic region. Next would be Europe, Asia and the MidEast before finally hitting U.S. LG Optimus G owners. Don't say it won't happen. After all, who would have thought that those with the device in Estonia, only on a specific mobile operator, would find Android 4.4 driving the phone well before many other more powerful Android handsets?
