Great news LG G2 owners, as the handset is now getting Android 4.4 in Korea. Something amazing is happening with the Android OEMs. Many of them are updating their flagships to Android 4.4 within a month after the new software version made its official debut on the Nexus 5.
The Verizon Moto X was first, which got the update ahead of the Nexus 4, followed by the T-Mobile Moto X a few days ago. Then HTC released KitKat for the unlocked and Developer Edition One models in the US just a week after the Nexus 4. Now we hear that the Korean LG G2 is receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat update.
If you happen to live in Korea and you own an LG G2 hear that the Android 4.4 KitKat is out there waiting for you. You should know that you won’t be able to find the new firmware under Settings > About Phone > System Update because it is not rolled out OTA. In order to check for the LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update you will have to grab the USB cable and connect the device to the PC via LG Update Tool.
For what it’s worth, earlier this month we got to look at a leaked roadmap of the French carrier SFR which revealed that the SFR LG G2 will be updated to Android 4.4 in November or December. With only a day left in November, we will have to wait and see whether the software update will be released by the French carrier next month.
The LG G2 was launched running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the news saying that KitKat is already rolling out in Korea indicate that LG’s flagship smartphone will skip Android 4.3.
