You're lucky. I'm lucky. We live in countries where we can easily buy a nexus phone with a click of a mouse at a low price. Unfortunately, many members on this site live in countries where google play is not available for phone purchase or even when they're available, they're super expensive.

I find it odd that the Optimus G isn't on that list. It's more than capable of running 4.4

Optimus G, Project code: j, Is in that list.

The Screen shot comes from a decoded LGCamera.APK, which runs on Android 4.4 OS, that is why Phonearena said LG to Skip Android 4.3

I really hope this is not a big let down. LG Optimus F3 just got an update not to long ago that was supposed to be a part of a two or three update series. They said because it was to big to send at once. Well the first installment was more bloat and stuff for the hearing impaired. Then nothing. I guess we wait, but it would be nice to see something besides this article that I've been staring at for 3 days praying!!

Hi, The leak is not from UA Profile.
No evidence yet LG will push the Android 4.4 update for these devices
The screenshot comes from a hacked LG App.
