When, if ever, will your LG smartphone get Android 4.1?
Jelly Bean is an elusive update for most high-end Android smartphones today, even though introduced at Google I/O four months ago. Today, LG revealed which devices will receive Android 4.1 in the upcoming months, undoubtedly in a move to catch up to the likes of HTC and Samsung that already have announced smartphones running the software.
The list of smartphones is not extensive, and includes more recent devices, such as the LG Optimus Vu and Optimus G; the latter model comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and made waves in the smartphone market for its incredibly powerful hardware. The South Korean manufacturer's flagship, Qualcomm-powered, device will be updated to Jelly Bean in December.
The LG Optimus Vu as well as its younger sibling the Optimus Vu II won't get Android 4.1 until next year. There is no word yet on the nVidia Tegra 3-powered Optimus 4x HD, but the less-known Optimus LTE II will get Jelly Bean next month.
