What some might thought it would never come, LG Electronics announced via Facebook that three smartphones from LG’s Optimus series will receive Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade starting with LG 2X November 1st in Europe.
The three premium smartphones of the Optimus Series will be upgraded first, as outlined below, followed by a global rollout thereafter.
- LG Optimus 2X: Now available (as of 1st November, 2011) for open models in Europe
- LG Optimus 3D: Week commencing November 21st for open models in Europe
- LG Optimus Black: Week commencing November 28th for open models in Europe
While the announced upgrades will be available only for Europe, we should expect new upgrade for the rest of the world starting early December.
The exact timing of the upgrades in each market (local carriers) may vary because of the different requirements in each country. LG encourages all owners to contact local carrier customer service for an upgrade schedule.
