LG announces Android 4.0 for four handsets

LG has announced plans to update four of their Android smartphones to Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months.  Taking to Facebook to make the announcement, LG promises Android 4.0 for the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D, and Optimus LTE.  Although they don’t go into great detail, we suspect this means we’ll see Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the various U.S. counterparts as well.

We’re advised to follow LG Mobile’s Global Facebook page to keep an eye out for additional information on the update including schedules and specific models.  We also anticipate hearing about other models from across the LG product line.

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.

    Really disappointed to see it missing anything about their G-Slate tablet– it’s on 3.1 so should be completely 4.0-ready!
