If it wasn’t enough that LG misstated the presence of minimum Gingerbread hardware specifications in a Facebook post earlier this week, it turns out that the other assertion to come from that incident, that Optimus One phones won’t get Android 2.3, is also false.

LG put up a public notice today that all the Optimus One-series hamdsets will definitely be getting their own Gingerbread updates in the future. There’s no schedule available yet, but seeing as just two days ago the company apparently had no plans to send out the update at all, we’re guessing it could take a while to materialize.

What the company hasn’t yet commented on is whether or not its other similarly-outfitted Android phones will also make the transition to Gingerbread. While commenting on the state of the Optimus Ones, it specifically singled-out those running Froyo as the models in line for the upgrade; that’s an odd bit of clarification since all the Optimus One phones have Android 2.2. Maybe that will end up being LG’s determining factor for upgrades, leaving older phones still on 2.1 behind.

Now we’re really anxious to see how Gingerbread ends up performing on an Optimus One, and if the initial concern over the phone’s processor being underpowered ends up panning out.
