Earlier we told you that Samsung has started to release firmware updates for its handsets. To be more exact, the company is rolling out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Tab 7.0. The firmware upgrade is available for download OTA or via Samsung Kies. However, it seems that Samsung isn’t the only phone maker releasing upgrades as LG has officially announced that it too will roll out the Android Jelly Bean update for its Optimus Vu 2.
Unfortunately, the upgrade to Android Jelly Bean is only available for the owners of the Optimus Vu 2 who live in South Korea. In other words, the customers of both KT and SK Telecom are already having access to the update. As for the users who have a contract with LG U+, they will have to wait a while because they will receive Android Bean sometime in March. when the carrier will be rolling it out.
LG released the Optimus Vu 2 in 2012 and was a sequel to the original Optimus Vu. Both smartphones stand out due to their rather unusual displays which have a 4:3 ration instead of widescreen which is used on most devices nowadays. The update will make the Optimus Vu 2 stand on the same ground as many Android devices (whether they are high-end or mid-range) that were launched at the end of last year.
As for the users of the Optimus Vu 2 which don’t live in South Korea, the company didn’t mention anything, so where not sure when the international version of the device will receive the Android Jelly Bean update. We we’ll find out we will surely tell you, so there is nothing else to do but have a little more patience as the upgrade will eventually come.
