A number of Android smartphone makers — including HTC, Motorola, and even Sony — have all announced their Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade plans for their latest flagship devices, but we haven’t yet heard anything official from LG regarding the G2.
But according to one LG Canada representative, the handset will receive the latest version of Android in “late Q1” 2014.
The three largest Canadian carriers, Rogers, TELUS and Bell, are in the process of pushing out a rather hefty unexpected over-the-air (OTA) update to all of their carrier-branded Samsung Galaxy S4 and S4 Mini handsets located in Canada. This much-anticipated update finally brings Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a newer version of the TouchWiz UI to the handset, in addition to support for the Galaxy Gear.
Good news for those of you in Canada waiting for the new Moto G: the handset is now available to purchase on both TELUS and Koodo Mobile, and you can get it for free when you sign into a new two-year contract. If you want to buy it outright, it’s C$200.
As from today, Samsung’s latest Android-powered tablet, the Galaxy Note 10.1 – 2014 Edition, is available to purchase from several “major retailers” in Canada. Unfortunately, Canadians will only be able to get their hands on the Wi-Fi-only octa-core Exynos version of the slate at present, but rumor has it that the 4G model will not be too far behind and should be well its way within the next few months.
Canada’s largest mobile carrier, Rogers, is officially offering HTC’s most impressive mid-range Android-powered handset, the One Mini, on any of its 2-year contracts for C$99.99 or C$399.99 on a month-to-month tariff.
HTC finally unveiled the One max earlier this week following months of rumors and speculation, and the Taiwanese company said that the device will be “rolling out across the globe from mid-end October.” One place it won’t be visiting, however, is Canada — because they already have enough HTC devices to choose from, according to HTC.
Yesterday, HTC pushed out a rather sizeable, much-anticipated over-the-air (OTA) update to all One handsets in Canada. The upgrade brings Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Sense 5 to the device, complete with a mass of additional bug fixes and speed optimizations, as well as a stylish new charging animation for when the handset is powered off.
HTC president Jason Mackenzie has said that the company is working hard to provide the flagship HTC One and the Droid DNA with an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update by the end of September in the United States and Canada.
It appears the update is already ready for the public, but the Taiwanese company is awaiting certification before it starts rolling it out.
Following recent announcements from carriers in the U.K and U.S., Canadian operators have now started to make public their plans for LG’s latest flagship smartphone, the G2.
Canada will share the same 5.2-inch G2 as the U.S., and Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Videotron and Wind Mobile have all declared that they will be carrying the much-anticipated handset this fall.
