A screenshot of a direct message on Twitter between an LG Optimus G Pro owner and LG India surfaced on the internet yesterday. The G Pro owner, Prabhjit Singh Walia, had sent a message to the South Korean’s Indian Twitter account asking when the LG Optimus G Pro will receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update.
According to a screenshot of LG India’s reply, the device will be receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat update by the end of second quarter 2014, though we haven’t heard of an official statement from LG yet. If true, it means that we might see an Android 4.4 KitKat for the Optimus G Pro by the end of June 2014.
LG will skip the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update and push out the Android 4.4 KitKat update directly to a few devices. These include the LG Optimus F3, LG Optimus F6, LG G Pad 8.3, LG G Pro Lite, LG Optimus F7, LG Optimus L9 II, LG Optimus Vu II and the G2 will receive the KitKat update by march.
