In a report last month, we told you about a forthcoming software update for the LG Optimus L9 that would bring it up to speed with all the latest Android handsets in the market in terms of default software. Now, about three months after it first made its official European debut, the Optimus L9 has finally received this long-awaited software update, letting its users upgrade their device software to Android Jelly Bean.
According to initial reports, the LG Optimus L9 Jelly Bean update is currently available in the following locations: Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Portugal, and the Baltics region. Right now, this much-needed software upgrade is still not available in the U.S. But it won't be a stretch to imagine T-Mobile rolling it out at some point in the future. The only question is when exactly.
The LG Optimus L9 comes with a 4.7-inch qHD IPS screen and uses a 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor with a PowerVR SGX540 GPU and 1GB RAM. Its other features include a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture, 4GB of internal storage, and support for extra storage space by way of microSD cards. The LG Optimus L9 software update — all 575MB of it — is available for download over-the-air (OTA) as well as through the LG Update tool.
