Just a few months ago, LG France accidentally confirmed its LG Optimus G would be receiving Android 4.4 KitKat some time in October, although if you’re an owner of the 1-year-old Android smartphone, you’re probably well aware KitKat has yet to come your way. In fact, November came and went and still no Android 4.4 KitKat, but December looks like it’s the sweet month as the latest version of Android has started to roll out for the LG Optimus G.

As usual, there’s a catch. You see – Android 4.4 KitKat has been rolling out to the Optimus G in the lovely country of Estonia. In fact, the news comes from LG Estonia’s Facebook page, which at the time of this writing, has yet to retract their message, which when translated, reads: “Good news for LG Optimus G smartphone users – the Android 4.4 KitKat update is now available.”

We’re sure this leaves many of you LG Optimus G owners in other parts of the world wondering when you’ll be getting in on the Android 4.4 KitKat fun. Well – hopefully its rollout in Estonia is an indication that the software is ready to go primetime on the Optimus G, so let’s all hope it doesn’t take too long.

[Update: We received an email from LG Estonia that confirm the Optimus G received an update this week that allows users to access 4G connections for local carrier Elisa. At this time, LG Estonia doesn’t know when Android 4.4 KitKat will be released on the Optimus G.]
