Rumors suggested that LG would roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for its LG G2 by the end of this month. However, this was not true. Apparently, sources revealed the fact that Android KitKat will reach LG G2 devices at the end of the first quarter next year. Many other smartphone manufacturers already confirmed the schedule for the Android 4.4 KitKat update and most of them suggested the first and second months of 2014 to release the update.
This latest information came from an LG representative, Court Elliot who said that all Canadian Carriers will get Android 4.4 in late Q1, even though is not confirmed if all carriers will be able to offer the update at the same time. Nonetheless, even if the rumors will turn out to be true, late March 2014 seems a long way to go as other suppliers and carriers will release the latest Android firmware way before this period of the year. At this time, LG G2 is available for sale on Rogers, Bell, Telus, Wind, SaskTel and Videotron, and it reached the Canadian shelves on September 26.
The LG G2 is the star of the company while the LG G Flex with its curved chassis is only at the debut. Currently, the handset works with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean software, with a slight influence for LG’s own build in order to offer a unique presentation. On the other hand, European users of the LG handset are a little bit luckier. As far as rumors suggest, one of the biggest French carriers listed the OTA KitKat update for the LG G2 as coming by the end of this year. However, keep in mind that this is only leaked information, and no official confirmation has been released.
Google launched Android 4.4 KitKat on October 31, and if the rumors will turn out to be true and the firmware will reach the Canadian carriers in March, this will mean a fix months delay. In what concerns the KitKat situation for other countries, it is still unknown whether the update will be offered during the similar time frame because the timing might vary when it comes to all carriers available across the globe.
