HTC, Motorola and a few other companies have been very vocal on when Android 4.4 KitKat will land on various handsets. Motorola has even already released the update for the Moto X. Meanwhile, we haven’t heard much from LG on when to expect Android 4.4 KitKat on the G2, its current flagship. That all changes today.
MobileSyrup recently spoke with an LG spokesperson from Canada who said that the company will begin to provide the official update to its carrier partners during the first quarter of 2014. Once the update is available, we imagine LG will send it to all of the G2 carriers, including those in the United States and elsewhere. However, particularly in the U.S., the carrier approval process could add an even longer wait to the roll-out. It seems weird the update will take so long, considering the phone is pretty similar to the Nexus 5.
We’ll keep you in the loop if anything changes, but for now you can probably expect the G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update sometime in the late winter or spring if you’re in the U.S.
