Jelly Bean coming to LG Optimus 4X HD in Q1 2013?

by: Bams SadewoFebruary 1, 2013


The LG Optimus 4X HD is only a couple of months older than the Optimus G. Yet, while LG has confirmed that the latter will receive its Jelly Bean treat, with the newer batch even shipping with Android 4.1 onboard, LG is still keeping mum on whether or not the Optimus 4X HD will get the software update.

If the e-mail that one LG representative sent to is to be believed, there’s a possibility that the Optimus 4X HD will get its bowl of Jelly Bean soon. According to the rep, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update will hit the Optimus 4X HD in in the first quarter of 2013 in Europe. What’s more, the bootloader on the quad-core phone will also be unshackled around the same time.


As exciting as this sounds, you may want to take the good news with a grain of fine salt for now, at least until LG makes it truly official. Let’s just say that the company hasn’t been the best when it comes to serving those tasty new desserts.

Do you think LG will surprise its customers – in a good way – this time around?

    If only they could be more specific. I’m tired of using IcS on my O4X. And i can’t wait to try on custom Jelly Bean ROMs on it.

    I’ll believe it only when I see it, posted live… Ask Optimus 3D, G2X, myTouch Q and Optimus Sol users how their officially announced ICS updates are working out. Even the Optimus 2X and Optimus Black updates haven’t been completely rolled out worldwide.

    LG has a heck of a hole to dig themselves out of in 2013.

  • I will be very surprised.

    I strongly regret buying anything from LG. Their customerservice is bad no matter what product you buy. I have a TV that is making a rather loud “humming”-noise when it is turned on and LG refuses to take any responsability for it and sais it is “normal”. I would take everything I own witn an LG-badge out on my lawn and beat the shit out of it if I had money to buy something new…

    I will NEVER buy LG again, even if JB arrives tomorrow!
    I live in Norway btw. :)
