Sprint's LG Optimus G about to be Jelly Beaned?

Sprint's LG Optimus G about to be Jelly Beaned?
If you own Sprint's LG Optimus G, we can't blame you for being a little (or a lot) jealous. After all, the phone you bought sits with Android 4.0.4 while in Europe, the very same handset came with Android 4.1.2 right out of the box! And things didn't get better when you remembered about the Android 4.1.2 update in Korea that brought prized features like Google Now and Project Butter to those models. If this is too much for you to handle, and you're thinking about going postal, take a breath. It looks like good news is coming your way.

Some owners of the Sprint branded LG Optimus G have just received the Android 4.1.2 update, which came with software version LS970ZVB. Now because the nation's third largest carrier has yet to announce it, this could be a test. Or perhaps Sprint just wants to keep this on the DL. Regardless, it is a good sign and does show that soon LG Optimus G OS build parity will be achieved, which means a more tolerant, closer world.

If you are now at peace and serene because your Sprint bought LG Optimus G has received Jelly Bean, do what Gandhi and his followers did in time of meditation. Drop us a comment in the box below to let us know.

its a miracle!!! LG actually updated a handset to a newer version of Android. Im not sure why they would do this? Why update? Do they actually want to compete with Samsung, HTC, and Motorola?

Realistically though, it may be the much improved relationship with Google for Android. You know, the Nexus 4.

If this is true i think the folks at xda could get their hands on it and port it to the at&t version
