LG Optimus 2X ICS Delayed Until Q3? What About Other LG Models?

The road that leads to Ice Cream Sandwich has been a bumpy one for LG’s Optimus 2X. Shortly after Google’s official ICS unveiling with the Galaxy Nexus, we started hearing from manufacturers about their own plans for bringing ICS to existing handsets. Some early comments from LG on its Facebook page made it seem like ICS on the 2X just wasn’t going to happen. Later, we saw that note deleted, and further news from LG revealed that it still hadn’t made its mind up about the 2X and Android 4.0. That uncertainty didn’t last long, though, and by November the manufacturer had confirmed that the 2X would, in fact, be getting ICS. Later, in December, the company published a schedule for just when it planned to have the update ready for a number of its phones. At the time, the 2X was supposed to receive ICS during the second quarter of this year. Some new information has now come to light that suggests we might have a longer wait on our hands.

LG Singapore posted a response to a user’s question about the ICS update for the 2X by claiming that the software wouldn’t arrive until Q3. This message managed to fly under the radar for a couple weeks, but now that it’s getting some attention, it raises a few questions about LG’s update strategy. Will we be seeing similar delays on the other first wave of LG handsets the company had promised to bring ICS to? Are we talking July or more like September, here? Users have already been posting follow-up questions, so hopefully LG will come forward with a little clarification.
