Is it hot in here or is it just LG that’s feeling the heat of a backlash from disgruntled customers who aren’t getting the promised Android 4.0 update for their devices? Whatever is that they’re doing, it’s apparently working, as LG – the Singapore office, at least – has taken to Facebook to announce the coming of Ice Cream Sandwich update for several models.
Here’s what LG posted on its Facebook page:
“We hear you these recent weeks and would like to share with everyone that our Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) upgrade schedule is set and final details will be announced when they are ready. We are now working to fine-tune the upgrade for a better experience for all our customers.”
As for the devices that will receive the ICS upgrade, they include: LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Black, LG Optimus 3D, LG Prada, and LG Optimus LTE.
We won’t blame you if you’re taking a more cautious approach to the announcement, especially when it involves LG and software update. While this is as good of an official confirmation for the ICS update, the company is still dilly-dallying around in giving an actual date. LG only mentioned that the devices will receive the update in “due time”.
To end the report on a more positive note, some of the devices listed above are no stranger to ICS, namely the LG Optimus 2X in South Korea, Optimus LTE (in South Korea and Canada), and the Optimus Black. While customers appreciate the gesture that LG is showing by confirming the update, it’d have been a lot better to go a step further and announce a date so that customers don’t have to play the guessing game.
