LG Optimus G Starts Getting Jelly Bean With Android 4.1.2 Update


While the LG Optimus G is substantially similar to the Nexus 4, there are still a number of differences setting the pair apart. Those include price (the big one), availability, frequency support (at least officially), and software. Now, we know that Nexus devices are going to get the first crack at the latest code when it arrives, but the Optimus G didn’t even launch with Jelly Bean to begin with. Luckily for users who scooped one up, updates are on their way, and the first have already started arriving.

Before you get too excited, right now only the three South Korean editions of the Optimus G are receiving their Android 4.1.2 updates, but consider that a beacon notifying the rest of you that your updates should be on their way shortly, once your carriers get around to giving them their respective thumbs-up.

We haven’t yet seen a changelog for the Korean updates (Google Translate is not playing nicely with LG’s site), but at some point we should learn about any other tweaks LG has bundled into this release, besides just pushing up the Android version.
