According to French carrier SFR (translated) the Optimus G will receive its update from LG by Summer 2014 – no exact roll-out dates have been mentioned. The post further adds that the Korean tech firm was testing the Android 4.4.2 KitKat version on the Optimus G since January.
The LG Optimus G smartphone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean currently, and is one of the few flagship handsets that skipped the 4.2 and 4.3 Jelly Bean updates. The improvements which the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS update will bring to LG Optimus G is not clearly known, but the blog post speculates same features to arrive as seen in the recently launched LG G2. Furthermore, we assume that since the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS is planned to reach SFR variant of LG Optimus G, it might also reach other carriers soon too.
LG will soon roll-out its freshly introduced Knock Code feature to LG G2 and LG G Flex in April. The Knock Code update will give users instant access to their smartphones via a customized “knock” pattern. The Knock Code feature made its debut on LG G Pro 2 during MWC 2014, and is also available on G2 mini, F Series and L Series III. The Knock Code feature is the further enhancement of the company’s own KnockOn feature, which it had patented in 2008.
