LG purportedly confirms Optimus G Pro will get Android 4.4 in Q2

lg-optimus-g-proZero is the number of LG-made devices officially upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat so far, which is not something the OEM is particularly proud of. But at least there’s rising rumble of fairly advanced work on multiple ports.

The G2, bumped up to 4.4 in Korea, should get the same treatment internationally starting next month (unless a new delay is enforced), whereas the Optimus F3, F6, F7, L9 II, Vu 2, Vu 3 and G Pad 8.3 are due for chocolaty goodness in the “near future”, skipping on 4.3 and in some cases 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Wait, what about the Optimus G Pro, LG’s second best smartphone nowadays, behind the G2? Third, if we also count the G Flex. Apparently and quite predictably, it’s to closely follow the G2. You know, if by “close” we mean three months or so later. Which I guess sounds right when referring to always sluggish LG.

But let’s not judge. Not today. After all, a software update is good news, no matter when it crops up. “The end of Q2” is allegedly the first-gen G Pro’s KitKat ETA, though for now, the info is far from set in stone.

LG’s Indian branch confirmed it on Twitter in response to an eager fan, albeit between now and May or June, a lot can happen. The G Pro 2 will land, alongside various mystery mid-rangers and upper mid-rangers, so don’t be surprised if LG loses perspective and forgets about yesteryear’s big thing.
