LG Optimus Black misses out on ICS update too
The other day we reported that LG Canada has confirmed that the LG Optimus 2X was not going to see an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich, which no doubt disappointed owners of the handset. Well the Optimus 2X isn’t the only LG device that wont be gaining Ice Cream Sandwich, as word is the LG Optimus Black is missing out on ICS too.
According to an article over on Phone Arena by way of the Mobile Indian, LG Canada use their Twitter page to announce that the LG Optimus Black wasn’t going to be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich, although apparently the tweet has now vanished.
Again, LG Canada states that the original upgrade announcement was a general statement issued by LG headquarters, the same statement they made with the announcement that the LG Optimus 2X wasn’t actually going to gain Ice Cream Sandwich.
But really it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the LG Optimus Black will not gain ICS due to the Optimus 2X being LG’s flagship device of last year, so if LG isn’t bothered about updating a past flagship handset then it would follow that lesser devices will also not be updated.
Although, LG hasn’t come forward to actually let anyone know just why these smartphone have been left out of the updating game, but it does appear that if you own the LG Optimus Black you are left running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Perhaps it is time to ditch your LG handset for a newer smartphone that comes with ICS aboard.
