LG’s Optimus One line apparently won’t get Android Gingerbread
But there’s some bad news for those hoping that the handset will receive an update to the new Android 2.3 Gingebread OS.
According to LG Mobile USA’s Facebook account:
“The Optimus line won’t be getting the Gingerbread update because they have a 600MHz processor,and the minimum requirements for Gingerbread require 1 GHz processor. In other words: it’s not possible to update the processor, unfortunately.”
And about that “Gingerbread requires 1 GHz processor” thing: it looks like this is not true. Android engineer Romain Guy tweeted (via Android Central) that “there’s no hard minimum processor requirement for Gingerbread.”
