While we wait to see if the Nexus 4 is a reality, LG says it will begin Android 4.1 Jell Bean upgrades for several international models.
Though the LG Optimus G is set to arrive at AT&T stores on November 2 (and later to Sprint), LG isn’t still hedging on when it will get an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade.
Yet, for the Optimus G’s international brethren, LG is being more forthcoming. A press release (translated) on LG’s Web site today detailed the expected time frame for an Android 4.1 update for a select few Optimus models.
Things get started in November with the Optimus LTE II, followed in December by the international Optimus G. Then, the first quarter of 2013 will see the Optimus Vu and its successor, the Optimus Vu II following behind.
Indeed, LG would be wise to get 4.1 out as quickly as possible, piggybacking on the momentum the company has built lately with the Optimus G and the rumored Nexus 4. LG may poised for its strongest Android efforts yet, and rolling out the most recent release of Android as quickly as possible could help the company chip away at some of that Samsung market share.Share on Facebook
