LG’s plans to upgrade its flagship LG G2 to Android 4.4 KitKat first came to light last month. LG Canada revealed then that it planned to have the update out by the end of the first quarter of 2014 (end of March). We may now have a narrower timeline to work with courtesy of of one LG’s carrier partners.
France’s SFR has told its customers that the Android 4.4 LG G2 update is now “official” and will roll out in early 2014. Better yet, SFR adds that it hopes to have the update certified shortly so that it can push it out to customer devices by the end of January.
As with the Canadian update, it’s not clear if this plan will apply globally or is specific to SFR. It is more likely to be the latter, especially as the timeline comes from SFR rather than LG itself. It also once again confirms that LG will skip Android 4.3 altogether in favour of this latest version.
With Google having just released Android 4.4.2, it’s not clear whether the update will upgrade the LG G2 to the original 4.4 release or to 4.4.2.
We’ll let you know as soon as we get further information directly from LG about its LG G2 Android 4.4 update plans.
