Oh this LG Ice Cream Sandwich story just keeps getting better and better and this time, we really do mean the story is getting better. As of early this morning LG Mobile has taken to their official Facebook page and attempted to end the Ice Cream Sandwich update rumors for the Optimus 2X.
“LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google.”
There you have it, not only will the Optimus 2X receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update, so will “other LG high-end smartphones.” Given the close relationship between the Optimus 2X and it’s Americanized counterpart, the G2x, we continue to hope that LG will provide T-Mobile users with the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
Considering only two weeks has passed since the Ice Cream Sandwich announcement, and adding in the notion that the code itself has yet to be made available (publicly that is) it’s a little premature to start blaming the manufacturers for not promising to update your smartphone. We’re just going to have to wait and see what happens.
