LG Italy: LG G2 will see Android 4.4 KitKat by end of March

According to LG Italy's Facebook page, the LG G2 will see Android 4.4 KitKat by the end of March. Could this mean a global launch of KitKat for the G2 is coming around the same timeframe?
January 15, 2014

Back in December, LG started rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat to the Korean version of the LG G2, but what about the rest of the globe? According to LG Italy, the update may end up reaching Europe by the end of March.

The response from LG Italy comes by way of Facebook, where LG responded to a user inquiring as to when KitKat would finally be making its way over to users in Italy. Although LG Italy only specifically mentioned their own country, generally speaking these types of updates often arrive all around the same timeframe throughout most of Europe. Furthermore, LG France had previously indicated that their update had been delayed to sometime in early 2014.

What’s interesting about the claim of March 2014 is that it isn’t the first time that this month has been linked to the G2’s KitKat rollout. Back in November, an LG Canada rep said that the update was expected to arrive to major carriers in Canada by the end of Q1 2014, which basically means late-March.

Again, LG has yet to set these release timeframes in stone, and it’s important to note that the United States tends to be a bit slower when it comes to rolling out updates — at least when carriers are involved. In other words, while the month of March sounds like a plausible candidate for a global rollout of KitKat, things could change.

For those interested in taking a closer look at KitKat running on the Korean LG G2, be sure to check out the video below:

For current LG G2 owners, are you impatiently awaiting the upgrade to KitKat, or are you perfectly content with Jelly Bean for now?
