ICS update for LG Optimus 2X is coming after all

13 August, 2012

LG Optimus 2X users must be getting sea sick of all the back and forth - LG committed to upgrading its former flagship to Android 4.0 ICS nearly a year ago, then there was a delay and then LG Canada tweeted that the update just won't happen.

There was always the possibility that that LG Canada's statement was meant for Canadian 2X phones only, which seems to be the case. The tweet from LG Korea confirms that the update is in the works - for Korean phones at least - and is already undergoing testing. However, LG didn't specify when it will be ready for release or which regions will get it.

The ICS update for the Optimus 2X was targeted at some time in Q3, so LG still has a month and a half. It seems that the LG Optimus 3D P920 will also be getting in on the ICS update action, but we couldn’t find a reference to the Optimus Black (which was also denied an update by LG Canada).

So, it seems that the LG Optimus 2X update saga will have a happy ending, at least in Korea. Now if we can only get official word on 2X's fate in the rest of the world, we promise not to ask about Jelly Bean.

Thanks for the tip, youyou.reg!

so sad to after all my lg phones, I have to agree with the crowd screaming LG is dead end. I have to move after all, but I like the LG phones, they have nothing with ApplexSamsung nor with SonyMusicEricsson, or Motogoogle, but unfortunate of me I can...
