The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the international LG G2 units is now available for download via the OTA service. The KitKat firmware has been available for the Korean LG G2 since December, while the AT&T's users got it the last week of February.

Naturally, the update will bring you the latest Android OS version with all of its improvements including faster performance, better battery life, plus enhanced Knock On feature.

The update will roll out gradually so it could take a few days or weeks before the Android KitKat firmware becomes available for your LG G2.

Here is the official change log from the AT&T's update, which should apply for the international one as well.

  • Improved user interface with Android 4.4 KitKat: The latest version of Android includes enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, improved closed captioning support, and stronger security.
  • Improved battery efficiency: the phone plays music more efficiently and supports the battery-saving location mode, extending battery life.
  • Faster processing speed: The latest version of Android provides a noticeable speed boost that runs applications 17 percent faster than before and web-browsing speed is mproved with the Chromium engine.
  • Printing in the Cloud: Google Cloud Printer makes it simple to print documents via Wi-Fi or a Bluetooth connection.
  • Enhanced “Knock On” feature: The responsiveness of LG’s Knock On feature has been improved.

Thank you, DuVerre, for the tip!
