LG G Flex Android 4.4 update to add 4K video support


We have a very promising indicator for owners of the LG G Flex smartphone today, as it appears that the Android 4.4 update will add 4K video support. The phone famed for its curvaceous and flexible design arrived last November and launched on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, so this will be welcome news.

Although the addition of 4K video hasn’t been confirmed by LG, a reliable source according to Phone Arena, has tipped this information. This is reinforced by a User Agent profile that indicates the G Flex as offering 2160p video.

The same source also says that 120fps slow motion video will NOT be supported with the Android 4.4 update. An XDA member has already come up with a mod enabling an LG G2 with stock Android 4.4 to shoot 4K video as well as 120fps slow mo.

However, owners of the LG G Flex will only have to update it to Android KitKat to receive 4K video capabilities. It’s not yet clear exactly when the Android 4.4 update will roll out to the phone, but we’ll be following developments on this and will keep readers in the loop.

In the meantime it would be interesting to hear what owners of the LG G Flex think about 4K video on the way with the Android KitKat update? Do send us your comments to let us know.
