Great news for the owners of the world’s first dual-core smartphone. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for LG Optimus 2X is finally here, and will soon roll out for the international model, too.
The whole story about the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware update for LG Optimus 2X rather looks like the script for a soap opera show, with the South Koreans promising that the update will roll out, then changing their mind out of nowhere, while the smartphone’s owners were sad seeing their terminal left behind. Anyway, it looks like LG decided it’s time to release the official Android 4.0 ICS update for LG Optimus 2X, now almost a year after the operating system saw the light of day synchronized with the launch of Galaxy Nexus.
The new firmware update have already hit the LG Optimus 2X SU660, a variant commercialized on the South Korea market, and all the tech publications are writing that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich’s port for the international model is imminent. Better late than never.
LG Optimus 2X was launched with Android 2.2 Froyo on board, then it was upgraded to 2.3 Gingerbread, and now the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is ready to arrive on the world’s first dual-core smartphone. Don’t even dare to dream of the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but you might be able to get it using a custom ROM like CyanogenMod.
The South Korea-based smartphone integrates a 4-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution. It is underpinned by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1 GHz, has 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal flash storage and microSD card (up to 32 GB supported), 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording capabilities and a 1,500 mAh battery.
In terms of connectivity LG Optimus 2X comes with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth and microUSB 2.0.
