Three Optimus smartphones released back in 2012 with Android Ice Cream Sandwich will be upgraded to Jelly Bean, LG has confirmed.
Set to be updated "in the first half" of 2013, the LG Optimus 4X HD P880, LG Optimus L9, and LG Optimus L7 will all receive the update. The L9 and L7 mentioned by LG Hong Kong are Asian versions; the international versions (P760 and P700) are expected to be updated soon after.
LG’s Optimus G has already received its Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update in South Korea. An international rollout is set to be deployed in due course. The Optimus G Pro will launch with Jelly Bean, which should also apply to the LG Optimus L7 II Dual; the smartphone is set for an MWC 2013 reveal (February 25 - 28).
The South Korean handset manufacturer recently teased that its MWC event will debut a new phone series, which is promised to deliver "an unexpected distinction."
