LG names smartphone Android 4.0 recipients

Optimus update list announced

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

LG has named the smartphones that will gain the in-demand Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS upgrade.

Specifically, LG will make the new Google operating system available for its Optimus 2x, Optimus Black and Optimus 3D.

They may not be the only ones. LG said on its Facebook page: "We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible."

Whichever handsets get the fresh firmware, LG isn't saying for the moment when they will get it.

However, it promised to post its upgrade schedule next month. Carrier-specific versions of the software may take longer to arrive. ®
