The update path isn’t a pretty one, and not every device is going to get the software upgrade that people want, but it would seem to us that manufacturers are trying to do their best here. And, unlike previous updates, that’s about all we can ask for. When it comes to LG, it looks like there were some rumors floating around that their Optimus 2X wouldn’t be getting the upgrade. LG says that’s not true, and goes on to say that they’re looking into updating their other high-end smartphones, too.
Let’s just get right to the statement from LG:
“LG firmly denies the rumors that claim LG will not be providing the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS update for the LG Optimus 2X. These rumors are NOT true. LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.
Thank you very much.”
LG is an international manufacturer, and as you can see in the statement above the Optimus 2X is definitely listed. However, what isn’t listed, are any US-based high-end LG manufactured smartphones. But, there should be some solace in the fact that while the 2X is listed, it may give rise to the eventual update of the G2X for T-Mobile. Anything is possible, though. And while words are great, it will be up to LG to actually go through with it.
