LG Optimus G gets Android 4.4 in Estonia
posted by Alan F. / Dec 12, 2013, 1:34 PM
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?

A very pleasant one I might add. Are they turning over a new leaf? Damn, after all those critics' statements about software updates by LG, who would've "thunk?" Anyhow, a great move by LG to shut all those criticizers.

Incredible. The S4s, Note3s, G2s, G Pros, Z1s, Z Ultras, Ones, One Maxs etc... with their super powerful 2013 hardware are mostly waiting to get 4.4, some of them even waiting for 4.3, and here comes the old 2012 LG Optimus G in some random country on some random network getting 4.4, just WOW.

how is that incredible? optimus G users waited more than a year just to get 1 update, alot of the customers probably switched phone by then. Not updates for 1 year and 2 months, sounds very disappointing to me.

That's great news. I love my G2 and it's the best phone I ever had (I only had Samsung HTC and Iphone before) but this phone is so good and customizable that updates don't mean anything to me. I can live with this for another 2+ years.

actually this news turned out to be not true at least according to post #324 herehttp://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?
Sorry guys. Seems it actually WAS too good to be true. Just got the answer from LG Nordic.
“We now have some clarity as to what has happened. Optimus G has not gotten KitKat in Estonia, it's a mistake on their part.
They've got a new version of their software and have thought it to be KitKat, which it isn't.
We don't know if/when an update for the Optimus G would become available.
Sincerely, Magnus / LG”"
