LG announces KitKat updates for older Optimus models

Tags: LG, Android, Rumors

LG Brazil, obviously not too busy caught up in World Cup festivities, announced on Facebook that several older model LG Optimus devices will receive Android 4.4.2 KitKat updates. This will bring them in line with their more recent descendants like the G3 and G2.

The LG Optimus G, now almost 2 years old, is scheduled to be running KitKat by the end of August. The more recent Optimus G Pro is slated to get the update a month earlier, in July.

Certain other LG models, like the L7 II and dual-SIM G Pro Lite models will also receive the update by years' end. Others won't be so lucky, as devices like the LG Optimus 4X HD and LG Optimus F5 will not be getting updated to Android 4.4 KitKat.

Thanks, Srdjan, for the tip!

I have an LG L7 ii dual. After successfully installing kit Kat 4.4.2 my phone became very slow and laggy but the new os is very good with new features that I like and use a lot.
