LG, better known as the rumored next generation Nexus manufacturer these days has issued a press release indicating some upcoming launch details for some Jelly Bean Android 4.1 updates. Unfortunately, the press release is coming out of Korea, which doesn’t do a lot for us here in the US, but a rollout schedule is a rollout schedule.
The Optimus LTE II will begin to receive its very own Jelly Bean upgrade this November, bringing forth a whole bunch of UI improvements and LG apps. The Optimus Vu and Optimus Vu II in Korea will also receive Jelly Bean beginning sometime in the first quarter of 2013, with a host of similar improvements including improved touch response.
According to the press release and we’re working through Google Translation to understand these details, Optimus G owners should begin to see their own Jelly Bean upgrade in December. As for the rest of LG’s device lineup or more specifically, device lineup here in the US, we’ll have to wait and see what kind of local announcements the company makes regarding US smartphones. Or better yet, we’ll have to see what the carriers decide to do with LG and Jelly Bean updates, considering we know they’re the ones that really pull the strings.
