LG Optimus LTE 2 set for November Jelly Bean upgrade

LG has announced that its first smartphone to be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be the Optimus LTE 2.

The handset will receive the update in November and will be not-so-swiftly followed by the Optimus G, which is due to receive the update in December. The upgrades will first become available in LG's native Korea before rolling out elsewhere.

The first quarter of next year will see the Optimus Vu and the Optimus Vu 2 upgraded to Google's latest operating system.

LG did not divulge any information with regards to the Optimus L7 or the Optimus 4X HD, although they are expected to receive the Jelly Bean update at some point in the near future.

Google released Android 4.1 Jelly Bean earlier this year, alongside the Nexus 7 tablet. The operating system is quicker than its predecessor and boasts a host of improvements in areas such as text input, voice typing, languages and the Android Beam sharing feature.
