We recently heard that the LG Optimus 4X HD is getting the Jelly Bean update in Q1 2013, but now the same source from Android.caotic.it has spotted LG Hong Kong publicly announcing that Jelly Bean for the 4X HD, L7, and L9 is coming in the first half of 2013.
Pardon our Chinese, but the translation goes roughly along these lines:
[Jelly Bean upgrade]
We are happy to announce that the following LG Optimus phones will get an upgrade of the operating system to Jelly Bean during the first half of this year! We will keep you informed!
1. P880 Optimus 4X
2. P705 Optimus L7
3. P765 Optimus L9
Unfortunately, the people behind the Facebook page had no information on other smartphones.
LG has a tendency of being a bit late with these schedules, so we’d guess this should better be taken as “this year” rather than anything else.
