LG Outs Plan to Upgrade Some Smartphones to Android 4.0
LG today indicated via its Facebook page that it will update a handful of its Android smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The first wave of phones LG is committing to update includes the Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D, and the Optimus LTE. These phones are available in markets outside the U.S. LG said that it is still evaluating whether or not it can upgrade other devices, such as those sold by T-Mobile (G2X) and AT&T (Thrill 4G). LG will provide more details on the upgrade schedule later this year.
We spent some time with the newly-refined LG Thrill 4G for AT&T. As we've reported before, it's essentially the same phone as the Optimus 3D announced at MWC this February.
LG kicks it up a notch with the G2x, its flagship Android smartphone, which has an 8 megapixel shooter and can capture full 1080p HD video. How does it measure up against the competition?
We had time to play with LG's new Optimus 3D, with 3D display, 3D camera, and dual-core, dual-channel architecture. See what we think about this unique new phone.
We had some time with the new LG Optimus 2X. It's one of several new phones running Nvidia's Tegra 2 chip with dual-core 1 GHz application processor.
