LG has issued a press release that talks about Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates for some of its high-end smartphones.
Reportedly, the company’s latest flagship – the Optimus G – will get Jelly Bean in December. This means that, when the handset arrives in the US via AT&T and Sprint (sometime next month), it will still run Android 4.0 ICS.
Optimus G aside, LG says the Optimus LTE II will receive Android 4.1 in November. The Optimus Vu and Optimus Vu II will only be upgraded in the first quarter of 2013.
These update dates are valid for South Korea, but I assume the timing won’t be too different for other markets. We’ll let you know.
Meanwhile, LG is getting ready to announce a new Google Nexus smartphone, which will run Jelly Bean from day one. This should be officially unveiled before the end of October.
