LG and Samsung are bitter rivals in the world of consumer electronics, and in the smartphone scene, the war continues. While Samsung and Sony Ericsson have already announced their intention to deliver the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update to select handsets, it is now LG’s turn to step up to the plate to do so. Using Boxing Day as the opportunity to announce its plans, here is what LG mentioned on their Facebook page. “LG will be offering the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS upgrade for a range of LG smart-phones which were introduced this year. The global upgrade schedule will begin in the second and third quarters of 2012, which will be followed by a global rollout.”
Who will receive Ice Cream Sandwich from the LG camp first? We are looking at the LG Optimus LTE, the Prada phone by LG, the LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus Sol, the LG myTouch Q and the LG Eclipse. In the third quarter of 2012, the LG Optimus 3D, the LG Optimus Black, the LG Optimus Big, the LG Optimus Q2 and the LG Optimus EX will be on the receiving end, although LG did offer a disclaimer by saying that they intend to “offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner,” so nothing is set in concrete just yet.
