Owners of the LG Optimus G Pro might have a considerable wait ahead of them for the KitKat update, but that isn’t the case for users of the company’s latest flagship, at least in South Korea. According to PhoneArena, the LG G2 is beginning to receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in South Korea. The rollout comes a bit later than the promised time frame, but given LG’s previous track record of software updates, the fact that the rollout was only delayed by a few weeks should be taken as a blessing.
Of course, this doesn’t bring the international variant of the device any closer to the latest version of Android. The latest word on the street suggests it should begin receiving the chocolaty update sometime from late March. As always, that’s just an estimate, and apart from the usual phased rollout that all software updates see, carrier delays would have to be taken into account as well, though hopefully the rollout will be complete for LG G2 units before the end of the second quarter (that’s June, by the way.)
Any of our readers in South Korea received the update yet?
