I m user of LG g pro since last 40 days but still the company LG has not been able to bring out its book case in the LG outlets in Mumbai, n I'm been told by one of their SRep that book cases r available but LG co. has no time to bring out as the company is busy in launching G2 n nexus 5. This is really ridiculous man LG can't LET GO the G PRO customers since they r in a hurry to launch G2 n Nexus 5. People r worried about the Updates, we in India r not even getting the Book case from LG. If LG wants to come clean on this matter it should sincerely provide Book case Free of cost to all its G Pro customers to get a clean chit from its G Pro customers and if it really want to establish itself as Customer Friendly Company like Samsung.
I bought LG Optimus G Pro E980 locked with AT&T and brought it to India and got it unlocked. Its android version is 4.1.2.
I just want to know if there is any update over this version for my phone?
