LG finally announces Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for Optimus devices

Following several delays, LG has finally announced the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS update for its Optimus range of smartphones. LG's Optimus devices including the LG Optimus 3D presently run on Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. The software upgrade comes after Sony Ericsson announced Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update for its Xperia smartphones. Earlier, LG had announced the update only for its Optimus One smartphones.

Announcing the update on its official Facebook page, LG says, “LG would like to express its sincere thanks to all of the Optimus Series owners who have been waiting patiently for the Android 2.3 Gingerbread upgrade. We are excited by the high level of product interest that LG Optimus Series owners have shown, and we are taking all possible measures to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner.”

LG will first upgrade its three premium smartphones namely LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus 3D and LG Optimus Black in Europe, 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"

The company also adds that the timing of upgrades in each market may vary due to the different requirements in each country.

LG's Gingerbread update comes in the backdrop of the launch of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Nexus is going to be the first device to sport the latest version of the Android operating system. It's being speculated that several devices in the pipeline may already be updated to Android 4.0. It will be interesting how devices with old versions of Android compete with the devices sporting the Android 4.0 ICS OS.
