Update on LG Optimus G KitKat release


Got another update from one of our readers regarding the LG Optimus G KitKat update and the additional details we had on that story. Below is the email from our reader, who found the original story from XDA Forum:

Bad news this time, LG Electronics Estonia has just released a new post on their Facebook page, apologizing that their previous post regarding Estonian Elisa customers being able to update their Optimus G to Android 4.4 was false:

Original post:

“Vabandame siiralt kõigi ees, kuna peame teatama, et informatsioon Android 4.4 KitKat uuenduse kättesaadavuse kohta LG Optimus G nutitelefonile osutus paraku ebatõeseks.

Küll aga on LG Optimus G nutitelefoni omanikele on kättesaadav uuendus, mis võimaldab kasutajatele liigipääsu 4G internetile.

Vabandame ebameeldivuste tekitamise pärast.”

Rough translation:

“We must deeply apologize for giving out false information. Apparently there has been some misunderstanding and the news about 4.4 update availability for LG Optimus G has unfortunately turned out to be false information. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences it might have caused.”

Additionally, XDA forum contributor Flaide Laise approached LG Nordic, who said that LG Estonia was indeed mistaken that the software update they received was that of Android 4.4 KitKat, when it was in fact not at all. The post can be found here.

At this point, on the same XDA forum thread, many LG users have expressed their dissatisfaction towards LG, both blaming the Estonia division for giving us high hopes and also blaming LG for never delivering updates, which LG is infamous for. Especially worried is user @ints1981 who had already submitted his phone to the Estonian service center. His phone could well be already on its way to Lithuania — for nothing.
