LG Confirms Ice Cream Sandwich for Latest Smartphones

The Korean smartphone makers and electronic titan LG has typically notified its users that which of its Android-powered smartphone will offer an upgrade for Google’s latest mobile operating system Android 4.0 (codenamed: Ice Cream Sandwich).

LG, on its Facebook page, informed users that the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D and Optimus LTE will receive an OS update. However, the company didn’t reveal anything to the handset owners about when they could expect the update:

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.

Even though, the update is currently limited to the devices which company launched this year, the company said that it is assessing the Android 4.0 for possible compatibility with the functionality and performance of its current smartphone lineup.

Users can expect to have further details about the update somewhere next month. LG apparently seems quite on giving any possible due date for when the update will be rolled out to the aforementioned smartphone handsets.

HTC, Samsung and Sony Ericsson have already announced that they will soon roll out an update for their latest handset devices. Google has released its new mobile operating system recently in a joint event with Samsung, where Samsung announced its latest Galaxy Nexus being the first smartphone to launch with Android 4.0.
