Your Sensation has the Snapdragon S3 processor which Qualcomm dropped support for. Any device with the S3 won't get any more updates. Even the Galaxy S2 only got updated to 4.1, but it had 1 GB of RAM.

I love my LG G2, it's such a great phone. Glad to see we have some hope of getting the update. This is my 1st LG phone, hope they keep the improvements coming.

Samsung will be releasing 4.4 to the other devices after the S5 has been released. That's word I got straight from them. No exact times though, but I'd say between 3 weeks to 3 months after it's launched on the S5.
