LG's Optimus 2x, Optimus Black and Optimus 3D Smartphones Get ICS Update

LG has announced its plans to bring the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to as many LG smartphones as possible.

The announcement came as the company revealed the smartphones were in line to get the ICS update pretty soon.

The Korean consumer electronics giant stated that its Optimus 2x, Optimus Black and Optimus 3D smartphones will be getting the ICS update. However, the company failed to give a release date for the update, but did say it would post an update schedule next month, as reported (opens in new tab) by Engadget.

"We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible," the company wrote on its Facebook page.

As of now, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, launched jointly by Samsung and Google, is the only smartphone in the market that carries the much sought after Android operating system.

ICS aims to bridge the gap between Android based smartphones and tablet devices. The platform comes with a radical new user interface and amazing features like facial recognition based phone lock and the ability to keep track of data use.
