LG has had quite the run with Facebook stories about whether or not certain devices will receive an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Today, it’s taken to Facebook to announce plans to bring ICS to their top-tier devices. So far, the named devices that will see the update are the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D and Optimus LTE.
Though this does not suggest the US variants of these devices, we have a strong feeling that the US versions will also see the ICS update. It’s likely that LG simply used their internal names for these devices in the announcement rather than stating all names carriers have chosen to give these devices.
The full statement from LG:
LG confirms today that the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS will be initially available for the following high-end LG smartphones which were introduced this year: the Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE. We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible.
In December this year, the forthcoming upgrade schedule and additional specific models for the ICS OS upgrade will be posted on our LG Mobile Global Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LGMobile) and on our local LG websites. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.LG's Facebook PageLG
If you happen to own one of the named LG devices, you should be happy to know that your device will likely see the ICS update over the next few months. Stay tuned.
