LG has confirmed that British owners of of its Optimus 2X smartphone will have to wait until September for its promised Android 2.3 Gingerbread update.

The update was expected in the "mid June or July" timeframe, according to LG UK's Facebook page.

However, in response to a question about the Gingerbread release, the company posted: "The update will now be ready at the end of August to the end of September for the Optimus 2X. Sorry for the wait."

And then the post was mysteriously removed.

However, we checked with LG and it admitted that yes, the update won't arrive here until September.

"LG will be making the Android 2.3 upgrade available for all priority LG Optimus smartphones starting in June in specific markets and gradually rolling out the upgrade across all regions," it stated.

The reason for the long roll out? It's so that "Optimus customers will not experience the types of bugs found in smartphones recently upgraded to Android 2.3", apparently. ®
