LG, which is notorious for delayed roll out of Android updates for its smartphones, has now announced the Gingerbread update for its Optimus Black, Optimus 3D and Optimus 2X smartphones.
LG Internationally has announced the roll out of the slightly outdated Gingerbread update for its devices at a time when the whole world is getting ready for the Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich. With the latest upgrade, all the newer LG Optimus series smartphones including the Black, 2X and the 3D will be upgraded to Android Version 2.3 (Gingerbread). Notably, the competitors like HTC and Sony Ericsson have already announced the updation of newer smartphones to Ice Cream Sandwich while there is no such news from LG on the Android ICS.
Well for now, the time line for the roll out is definite and the roll out will begin with the LG Optimus 2X first on Nov 1 followed closely by the LG Optimus 3D on Nov 21 and finally the LG Optimus Black on Nov 28.
These dates, however, are mentioned for the LG handsets in Europe as it is from where the update roll out will begin and eventually will be available for other countries as well with no finite dates being disclosed by LG. The information was published by LG on its official Facebook account and no other information has been revealed by the handset manufacturer though.
These updates will start appearing for the non-carrier locked phones first. However, there is no information about the carrier locked device getting the update. More information clarifying the long list of doubts associated with these update roll out dates is expected from LG soon and we hope that they will not take as much time as they took in the roll out of the Android Gingerbread updates for devices.
