Most of the important Android phone makers have announced plans for Android 4.4 KitKat updates and now it’s the time for LG G2, which is one of the most powerful smartphone on the market. According to MobileSyrup, the LG G2 will get KitKat in Q1 2014, which is really good news, being in par with the other manufacturers.
Hopefully this is true, as MobileSyrup claims to have heard it from an LG Canada rep, but we do believe the Korean maker will update their device soon, considering it’s been released recently and it gained a lot of popularity. LG G2 is also the smartphone Nexus 5 is based on, which means they could borrow a bit of code from Google’s variant.
Both Android 4.4 KitKat and LG G2 have been released earlier this year and everyone is expecting an update rather sooner than later. For the moment there aren’t many smartphones sporting KitKat and all of them are somehow related to Google: Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Motorola Moto X, Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition and HTC One Google Edition. As you may know, Motorola is owned by Google and the Google Editions of Galaxy S4 and HTC One run vanilla Android, which makes it much easier for Google to update them.
Fortunately for those of you who own smartphones released this year, it seems like most of them are going to receive Android 4.4 KitKat in Q1 2014, including the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, HTC One, HTC One Max, Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and some flagships from other major phone makers, like Huawei.
