According to this thread at XDA Developers, Optimus L9 users can update their device in the following markets: Australia, Thailand, Germany, the Baltic countries, Spain, Italy, France, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Greece, and Hungary.
In the US, the Optimus L9 is offered only by T-Mobile, which didn’t say anything about updating it – so the handset is still running Android Ice Cream Sandwich. However, there are high chances for the carrier to offer Jelly Bean to its L9 at some point. We will let you know if it happens.
The Optimus L9 (pictured above) was launched by LG last year as its top of the line L-series handset. This year, the South Korean company introduced its second-generation L-series smartphones: the L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II. As you can see, there is no L9 II, and we don’t know if LG has plans for such a device. In any case, it’s good to see that the old L9 gets with the times and receives Jelly Bean.
