LG Expects Gingerbread Update For Optimus One In May

LG has said that they expect its best-selling Optimus One smartphone to be getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update at the end of May.

LG India revealed the information on its Facebook page, saying that the smartphone, which has sold millions of units worldwide, will be getting the much warranted update in May, according to Unwired View.

Responding to a question from another facebook user, LG India wrote, “The upgrade of LG Optimus One to android 2.3 is expected by May end & will be available in the Android market.”

“This information is subject to change and confirmation on the upgrade is yet awaited,” it later added. LG had promised back in December that its entire Optimus line of smartphones would be getting the new Android operating system.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread is expected to bring a series of updates including a tweaked user interface, better power capabilities, improvements in overall processing speeds and a smooth gaming experience. Google has also included NFC in the OS but LG Optimus One won't be able to utilise it.

LG Optimus One comes with a 3 MP back-facing camera, a 600MHz processor, a 3.2 inch touchscreen, Adobe Flash support, HSDPA and WiFi speeds, and up to 32GB of storage via microSD.
