LG has just released the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update calendar for some of its terminals. Therefore, smartphones like Optimus LTE 2, LG Optimus Vu and Optimus Vu 2 tablets and the LG Optimus G flagship (which will reportedly underpin the next-gen Nexus smartphone) will soon receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firmware update.
LG Optimus LTE 2 will receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean next month, coming with user interface improvements and LG bloatware. Optimus Vu and Optimus Vu 2 will be update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in the first quarter of 2013, with similar improvements and, apparently, an upgrade for the display’s touch experience.
The LG Optimus G users will be able to upgrade their devices to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in December and the list of devices that will receive the firmware update ends here. It’s true, some of LG’s models are still waiting for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, while Jelly Bean will definitely be welcomed by the users of other LG terminals.
Still the availability of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for LG smartphones is also related to the carrier’s program and the South Korea-based company’s desire to promote the LG Nexus 4 model. Rumor has it that LG Nexus 4 will run an “evolved” Jelly Bean version, unofficially dubbed Android 4.2.
I am curious though whether the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software update will become available for LG Optimus 4X HD, as it’s one of the company’s most interesting devices.
LG Optimus G is by far the most powerful smartphone in the company’s line up. It packs a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, introduced as the most powerful processor yet, Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and an 8 or 13 megapixel camera (depending on the market) with full HD video recording support. The flagship smartphone comes with 32 GB of internal flash storage and 2,100 mAh battery.
