LG denies Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ 4.0 update rumours

South Korean second largest consumer electronics company Lucky Goldstar has put an end to rumours and speculation, surrounding their LG Optimus dual core 2X mobile phone receiving an update to the latest version of the Android 4.0.

The company has posted a message to Facebook, from their LG Mobile account which reads – ‘LG firmly denies the rumors that claim LG will not be providing the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS update for the LG Optimus 2X. These rumors are NOT true.’

‘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. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.’

This comes a short time after HTC posted a message to Facebook, relating to Ice Cream Sandwich and their own handsets – ‘HTC has been looking closely at the new OS's features and functionality to determine our upgrade plans’. ‘Upgrades require a careful balance of hardware and software to ensure the best possible performance and usability, so please stay tuned as we assess our product portfolio. Our goal is to upgrade as many HTC devices as possible and we'll be sharing details on specific devices and timing in the coming weeks!’
