Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update For LG Optimus 2X To Roll Out Soon

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update For LG Optimus 2X

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.

    I bypassed LG and smartflashed the 30A ROM via xda forums.

    It is a very nice ROM, much smoother than 2.3.

    I’ve only noticed a couple of problems, one where if you plug the headset in and you have music in your music folder, it’ll start playing it after a while (although you can turn it off again with the headset button) and sometimes there is significant slowdown. I assume when there are too many apps running at once. It is only 512MB of RAM though. Battery usage isn’t phenomenal, but grabbing a couple of 3500mAh batteries on eBay makes that less of a problem.

    Although I’m tempted by more modern phones, the simple fact is that, to replace my phone would cost about $500. With ICS there’s no particular rush to change.

    If I get really adventurous I can re-root it and play around with custom ROMs again. But since ICS 2X allows me to read books, play Game Boy advance games via emulator, surf the internet, text, and make phone calls, I don’t really need to.
