We have an important update for LG fans and consumers who have already got the LG G2 or are planning to buy one soon. A recent report indicates that the LG G2 will get the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update by March of 2014!
Recently, Mobile Syrup contacted the Canadian division of LG in an attempt to get some valuable information about the company’s plan to roll out the latest version of Android OS. According to the report from Mobile Syrup, LG will be providing the Android 4.4 KitKat build to all the carriers by the end of the first quarter next year.
So even though ‘Q1 of 2014’ really sounds good, you should remember that it’s more like ‘end of Q1 of 2014.’ So if this information is correct, service providers will start rolling out the Android 4.4 KitKat firmware update for the LG G2 by the end of March next year. And if you happen to have an unlocked and SIM free version of the LG G2, you should expect this update by early March at best.
The LG G2 made a name for the company that had a difficult time competing with the big players in the market. But in spite of all this, the company seems to continue use its old ways – late updates! We know that there is a lot of work involved, but something has to be done! LG G2 consumers have to wait for about 4 months before they can get a chance to taste Android 4.4 goodness. But they have to face the fact that some of their friends are already using Android 4.4 KitKat even though their smartphone is like a year older!
The reason why LG G2 consumers should positively look forward to getting the Android 4.4 KitKat is for the long list of improvements and features that it brings along. There will definitely be a number of improvements under the hood, there will be better RAM and battery management, and there will be a lot of interesting features that will make life easier.
The LG G2 has been one of the most successful Android smartphones from the Korean manufacturer. This new flagship device sold millions of units all over the world, and the total sales number has already crossed the 10 million mark. The LG G2 has an innovative design with no buttons on the side; everything has been shifted to the back in a neat and clean fashion.
The LG G2 has a 5.2-inch full HD touchscreen display and is powered by one of the fastest mobile chipsets in the market today. So if you haven’t guessed it already, the LG G2 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset and is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 330 GPU and has 2GB of RAM.
The LG G2 comes with 32GB of internal storage, but there is no microSD card support, hence storage expansion is not an option. On the back of the device (just over the hardware keys) is a high-performance 13MP primary camera with autofocus, LED flash and optical image stabilization. One of the most important features of the LG G2 is that it has a massive 3000 mAh non-removable battery that outperforms almost every other smartphone in the market.
