Optimus G

According to a leak courtesy of French carrier SFR, the LG Optimus G will get the Android 4.4.2 update this Summer. So it seems like users of LG’s 2012 flagship still have a few months of waiting to do for the latest version of Android.


AT&T is currently pushing out a minor over-the-air update to all its carrier-branded Optimus G devices located in the United States. Sadly, this upgrade doesn’t bring any major software developments, such as Android 4.2.2, let alone 4.4, but it does include a couple of much requested stability improvements, one of which allows users to take still photos using the front and rear camera at the same time.


LG insists it has not released an Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Optimus G, despite an announcement on the official LG Estonia Facebook page that said the software was on its way.

“Mistakenly, there has been information spreading via LG Electronics Estonia Facebook page that LG Optimus G (E975) will receive an Android 4.4 KitKat update in Estonia,” LG told Cult of Android. “We confirm that it is not so and sincerely apologize for any given false or ambiguous information.”


UPDATE: LG has since released a statement to confirm that is has not released Android 4.4 KitKat for the Optimus G.

LG is in the throes of pushing out the much-anticipated Android 4.4 KitKat over-the-air update to all Optimus G devices in Taiwan. The upgrade brings Android’s latest operating system, coupled with a truckload of bug fixes, speed enhancements and stability improvements.

Following LG’s announcement in July, notifying consumers that it would be removing the word “Optimus” from the names of its upcoming flagship devices and replacing it with the letter G, there has been a lot of speculation suggesting that we could be seeing a new high-end Android tablet – dubbed the G Pad – which is due to be unveiled next month at the IFA in Berlin.
