LG is a company that makes good smartphones, but people seem o avoid to buy an LG branded device mainly because when it comes to pushing software updates the company is rather lazy. Even though it still lacks promptitude, LG is trying to meet the demands of its customers and learn for its mistakes.
At the end of 2012, the company rolled out Android 4.1 firmware upgrades for a few of its devices in South Korea namely Optimus Vu 2, LTE 2 and Optimus G. Now, three other important phones are going to receive an update in Asia. According to LG Hong Kong that posted the information on Facebook, the Android Jelly Bean upgrade will arrive for the owners of the LG Optimus 4X HD, Optimus L7 and Optimus L9. The company is not clear about the exact date when the update will start rolling out, but it specifies that it’s going to be “during the first half of this year”.
LG Hong Kong only mentions the model numbers (P880, P705 and P765) of specific regional versions of the devices, but we presume that LG will release software upgrades for the international models as well. When…we don’t know yet. The company will probably release the Android Jelly Bean update firstly to the Optimus G. After that, it will likely take care of the rest of the mentioned phones.
Moreover, LG will reportedly present a revamped Optimus L series at the Mobile World Congress. Perhaps, the Korean company will mention the software updates as well.
The conclusion is that LG needs to take the updates seriously because the users are getting more and more irritated about having to wait a long time for their handsets to receive a new upgrade.
