Sprint’s LG G2 gets KitKat, as do the G Pad 8.3 and Vu 3 in South Korea
It looks like this is a good day to be an LG device owner – that is, because no less than three of the company’s wares are now in the process of receiving updates to Android 4.4 KitKat.
In the US, it’s Sprint’s particular version of the LG G2 that’s set to get the update from today. There aren’t many details in Sprint’s listing of the new software version, but after updating you’ll be running build ZVB. This brings with it Android 4.4 KitKat from Google and a fix for a Next Radio audio issue.
It should be rolling out over-the-air, so your G2 should at some point notify you that there is in fact an update available for it do download and install. The update is released in stages, and as such it may take several days until it reaches your handset.
In LG’s native South Korea, both the G Pad 8.3 and the Vu 3 are getting updated to what is still the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. The G Pad 8.3 has been released internationally, so we’re hoping that the KitKat update will make it to other territories as well soon. After all, the G2’s KitKat rollout started in South Korea too, then slowly entering new countries.
The update for the G Pad 8.3 is said to be out both over-the-air and via LG’s desktop computer companion software. The Vu 3 can only get the new bits via LG’s Mobile Support tool.
