I guess that’s a slightly different method to determine whether or not a manufacturer will release a software update for one of its handsets – start a rumour suggesting the opposite and then wait for it to react. It’s not clear from where originated the rumours of LG not updating the Optimus 2X to Android 4.0 ICS, but the Korean manufacturer has now released a statement to confirm that it will in-fact be doing so once it has received the full code from Google. This does mean that it will likely be a while in coming, but at least it hasn’t been chalked off altogether. The statement, from LG’s Facebook Page, reads:
LG firmly denies the rumors that claim LG will not be providing the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS update for the LG Optimus 2X. These rumors are NOT true. LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google. Please stay tuned for more updates from LG.
