There’s a lot of buzz around the freshly unveiled Optimus G and the soon to be released Nexus 4, but I’m sure that most of you wouldn’t touch an LG phone with a ten-foot pole, regardless of specs and features.
And who could blame you? Although everybody had a rough time in offering solid and continuous software support recently, LG “shined” with delaying, canceling and all around messing up ICS updates.
We don’t know how much of a consolation today’s news will bring you, but we are (reluctantly) glad to inform you that Android 4.0 is now available for the Optimus 3D and 3D Cube. Here’s the thing – the ICS upgrade is up for grabs only in Korea, and we have no idea when and if the rest of the world will get it.
LG Singapore confirmed that ICS will be coming “soon” to the Optimus 3D back in August, but that was quite a while ago and the announcement also seemed local rather than global.
Anyhoo, if there’s any Optimus 3D or 3D Cube user from Korea reading us, you should go over to LG Mobile’s official website and grab the software updates from here and here. I’m not very fluent in Korean, but I think you’ll need to hook up your phones to a PC via LG’s PC Suite and follow the instructions.
There doesn’t seem to be any mention about the upgrade happening over-the-air, but it shouldn’t hurt to check in your phones’ settings menus before using LG PC Suite. Also, if anyone can find an official changelog posted anywhere, we would be very curious to find out exactly what LG has prepared for its (very few) still faithful customers.
