While we’ve seen reports of LG responding to criticisms over Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade status for the Optimus 2X and T-Mobile G2X, we had yet to hear from LG themselves. Well, now we have. According to an LG spokesperson, the reports (as originally reported here) claiming the Optimus 2X and G2X were not going to be receiving Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades:
The reports are unfounded and originated from sources unattached to LG.
With the introduction of Android 4.0 two weeks ago, our engineers have been poring over Ice Cream Sandwich in an effort to fully understand its features and requirements. LG R&D will then make recommendations as to which of our smartphones will deliver the best user experience with ICS. This process will take some time so we thank our users and advocates for their patience and ask that they keep an eye out for a future announcement from LG on this subject.
Optmus 2X and G2X owners aren’t out of the woods yet but it’s a reassuring statement nonetheless.
