LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update may have started rolling out internationally
Following in the footsteps of its Korean version, as well as the model sold by T-Mobile in the USA, the international LG G2 seems to finally be receiving the update to Android 4.4 KitKat. As always in these cases, the rollout could take a while, so if you don’t see the update immediately, don’t panic – just know that it’s probably on the way.
The information comes from GSM Arena, who have a screenshot (see below) reportedly confirming the update’s rollout. It’s unclear right now which countries are seeing it, but things should get clear in the near future. Also a mystery is whether this is just an over-the-air rollout, or if you can use LG’s desktop tools to download and install the update to your phone too – but if you do have LG’s desktop software, you can always try. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a nice surprise.
Otherwise, keep waiting for that update notification to appear on your phone’s screen, or manually check for it by going to the relevant part of the Settings menu. The update should have the same changelog as the one released in the USA. If so, you can expect restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, improved support for closed captioning, better security, improved battery efficiency, faster processing speed (apparently a 17% increase in performance, with faster app running as well as Web browsing), support for printing in the cloud, and enhanced Knock On feature.
