Back in October, France announced that their LG Optimus G would receive Android 4.4 as early as October. Considering KitKat’s release date was only October 31, that was preposterous. Still, it seems like the Optimus G will still be one of the first devices to receive the 4.4 update – at least in Estonia. LG’s Facebook page in Estonia announced that Optimus G customers of Elisa, the second largest carrier in the country, will begin receiving Android 4.4 today.
No word on when Optimus G owners outside of Estonia will receive KitKat, or when the higher-end LG G2 will receive 4.4.
Update: Unfortunately the information on LG’s Facebook page was untrue and LG reached out to us with the following statement…..
Mistakenly, there has been information spreading via LG Electronics Estonia Facebook page that LG Optimus G (E975) will receive an Android 4.4 KitKat update in Estonia this week. We confirm that it is not so and sincerely apologize for any given false or ambiguous information.
We confirm that in Estonia, LG Optimus G did get an update this week that allows users to use 4G internet. The update is available only for operator Elisa clients (https://www.elisa.ee/). But, to confirm once again – it was not Android 4.4 KitKat update.
Currently in our possession we have no information on whether and when LG Optimus G (E975) will receive an Android 4.4 KitKat update in Estonia. If this information comes to our knowledge we will immediately update you.
Given that Talkandroid has published an article on the topic, we would kindly like to ask you to update the post with our statement about the actual situation in order to avoid further misunderstandings.
Please, once again, accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.
