LG Optimus L7 and 4X HD Jelly Bean updates hit UK


The team here on Phones Review always like to keep our readers informed on the latest software updates that may be available officially for various smartphones. Now for our readers in the UK that may own either the LG Optimus L7 or Optimus 4X HD the Android Jelly Bean update has been made available.

Earlier this month we heard how the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update had begun its journey for the LG Optimus 4X HD, and like any Android firmware update it sees a staggered rollout that can also be held up by various carriers as it reaches different countries.

Now a few weeks later the company has taken to its official UK Twitter account to announce the availability of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for both the LG Optimus 4X HD and the Optimus L7 handsets.

It is likely the update will need to be achieved by connecting the handset to a PC or Mac, but at least the company has finally made it available and will mark a noticeable improvement for both handsets.

Users can look forward to a faster and more stable smartphone experience thanks to Project Butter, and the popular Google Now voice assistant feature will now be present. It is not known at the time of writing if the update is available to all users or if it is still waiting approval from carriers.

Has your LG Optimus 7 or Optimus 4X HD received the Jelly Bean update yet?

    I checked last night and it wasnt available, I have an unlocked LG 4X, has anyone else updated thier UK unlocked phone. Or does anyone know why I have been unable to get the update?

      Is that through the LG desktop tool? Have one on T-mobile too but they don’t even recognise it as an available phone in my ‘My T-mobile’ account so feared it wouldn’t come through them to the UK.

        Managed it through the latest LG PC Suite 🙂 Not noticed a huge difference as yet but there are some nice new things – quick messages and themes etc.

    Thats annoying, yes it was through the desktop tool, I wonder if there is an issue with my model, I purchased it through a supplier on E-cell it was brand new unlocked.

    On the support tool says I am using the latest version V10E.
