LG G2 Android 4.4 update now available in Canada

KitKat upgrade for LG G2

Just as we reported yesterday, LG Canada today announced that the LG G2 Android 4.4 update is beginning to roll out in Canada. We’ve received a couple of reports confirming this news as well. It promises to run applications up to 17% faster and improve battery life as well as improve music playback and delilver faster web browsing.

“LG is constantly striving to improve the user experience for its mobile customers and the latest KitKat OS upgrade furthers our commitment to Canadians,” said Ross Snow, vice-president of Mobile Communications, LG Canada. “In addition to introducing new features, the KitKat OS upgrade for the G2 delivers a number of optimizations that enhance the entire mobile user experience. We trust that our customers will enjoy the differentiated value offered by our latest upgrade package.”

LG Canada expects that the rollout will be complete by the end of this month. This suggests a staggered rollout is taking place. If you have not yet received an update notification, you can do so manually as well. To do so, trigger a check via Settings -> About phone -> System Updates -> Check now.

The update will not include LG’s new KnockCode security feature that lets users knock a pattern to unlock their LG smartphone. That will be delivered through a separate update sometime in early Q2.

LG Canada also announced that its LG G Flex Android 4.4 update will roll out later this year. No specific details were provided but are promised “closer to upgrade date.”
