For LG Optimus Black users who have been patiently awaiting an update, the Android 4.0 is not yet available. Instead, an update for Android 2.3 Gingerbread has started to roll out and is currently available in India and some parts of Europe. It won’t be too long before other markets will get the update too.

Once users get to update their smartphone’s OS, they will be using Android 2.3.4. While other competitors are already gearing up for the latest Android 4.0 OS, the Ice Cream Sandwich, the Optimus Black is still getting the Android 2.3 update. Even though it is a little outdated, it is still a lot better than Android 2.2 Froyo.

This LG Optimus Black update comes with a pretty decent line of bug fixes and some improvements on features such as widgets, shortcuts, active app management, camera geo-tagging ability, icons, updated calendar, app groups, better auto focus camera capability and more.

Most importantly, LG claims that this new update will promote a better power management on the units and will also provide compatibility with a wider scope of audio file formats such as MPEG 4, H.263 AVC, and AAC.


If you’re an LG Optimus Black user, what do you think about the update?
