There were earlier reports about LG considering to update it’s smartphones directly to Android 4.4 KitKat and it seems that they might actually be working on that. The once very popular and powerful Optimus G is in line for the KitKat update, it should come knocking at your door anytime soon this summer, as confirmed by the folks over at LG themselves. As we all know LG hasn’t been the best when it comes to updating it’s devices (the LG Optimus 4X HD wasn’t updated after android 4.1.2) so the LG Optimus G has been sitting on Android 4.1.2 for all this time when most of the competitors are rocking android 4.3. There are no specifics on the features and changes that shall be a part of android 4.4 update for the LG Optimus G and to be honest they won’t be ground breaking either but it will be nothing short of a more stable and fast experience for the old G. Apart from that expect better Multi-tasking for sure, and you will also get all the goodies from Google like the “Google Drive”.
LG surely didn’t deliver on the software updates for the Optimus G but considering that they finally managed to get the KitKat update right, customers might give them another chance. Stay tuned for more updates on the subject and feel free to drop your views in the comments section below.
