A long, long time ago (more like two months ago, really) – an early Ice Cream Sandwich build for Verizon’s LG Spectrum made it out of the testing room. Owners of the phone were filled with glee believing that an official Android 4.0 update was just around the corner. As the weeks and months have passed without any solid information from LG or Verizon, folks were ready to give up and take the unofficial route instead. If you’re still holding out for an official rollout, there’s some encouraging news coming from LG.

An LG representative has spilled the beans on the incoming ICS update for the LG Spectrum. According to hints on the phone’s support forum, the ICS update is apparently “getting very close.” He falls short on giving a timeline and leaves the task of setting a OTA schedule to Verizon. The announcement may come as early as tomorrow.

If you’re up for some F5-button hitting challenge, you can head to LG’s website, waiting for the announcement of the update to pop up. Alternatively, you can just chill with your LG Spectrum and wait for Verizon to break the news.  At least you have an official confirmation now that ICS is coming.

Excited about the impending update? Got any information about the cold dessert treat for your LG Spectrum? Please leave those precious comments below.

      i have had mine since April…and I have read just about every news update about the ICS update…Verizon needs to release a date before the next 50 phones release with JB and ICS is just an outdated POS update

    I agree. At this point, I have no confidence in either Verizon or LG. I’ll never trust another promise of a future update again.

  • Yeah, I think it’s time we all set our sites on only buying Google branded phones from now on, and putting an end tho this bullshit. And get them on a GSM network, since CDMA seems to be the hated step child of android phone updates.
