LG Optimus G not getting KitKat in Estonia

LG Optimus G not getting KitKat in Estonia
You might remember on Thursday when we told you that LG Estonia's Facebook page was spreading the word that customers of local carrier Elisa with the LG Optimus G were seeing their handset updated to Android 4.4. But on Friday, we received a message from LG Estonia that the update that went out was to allow the device to support 4G connectivity, not to be updated to KitKat. The message said that LG Estonia apologized for "any false or ambiguous information."

LG Estonia says that it has no idea when, or even if, the LG Optimus G will receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update. But they promise to immediately let us know as soon as they know.

So for all of you LG G2 owners who were feeling left out, and even for owners of other devices more recently launched that have not yet been updated to Android 4.4, this might make more sense to you. As many of you pointed out yesterday, how could a random carrier in a Baltic state be able to update a twice surpassed former flagship model to the latest Android build? The answer is, they can't.
