LG to get Ice Cream Sandwich Updates:
With Ice Cream Sandwich rolling out across many different devices, we have already covered the problems that many faced in upgrading to Ice Cream Sandwich on the Samsung Nexus S, and now we get news that LG will be rolling out their own updates to the Android operating system so here is the information we currently have.
Dates for LG Ice Cream Sandwich updates:
According to their facebook page, the roll out of ICS for LG devices will occur between April and September 2012:
“LG will be offering the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS upgrade for a range of LG smart-phones which were introduced this year. The global upgrade schedule will begin in the second and third quarters of 2012, which will be followed by a global roll out,”
Which models are due the upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich?
With certain Samsung models deemed not powerful enough for a legitimate ICS upgrade, we inform you of the models that will get an Ice Cream Sandwich make over in the new year for LG.
“During the second quarter of 2012 upgrades will begin for the following smartphone models: the LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3.0, the LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus Sol, the LG my Touch Q and the LG Eclipse.”
Optimus Black and Optimus 3D owners will have to wait until the end of summer for their upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS:
“These upgrades will be followed by upgrades for the following smartphone models during the third quarter of 2012: the LG Optimus 3D, the LG Optimus Black, the LG Optimus Big, the LG Optimus Q2 and the LG Optimus EX.”
We are not convinced that the upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich is all that amazing, so see no reason for owners to feel aggrieved if you never actually even see that slightly newer operating system grace your beloved smartphone.
