Several weeks ago, Google unveiled the latest 4.0 version of the Android mobile operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich. On November 2, representatives from Korean electronics company LG confirmed that several of its smartphones would receive an update to the new OS in the near future, according to PC Magazine.
The news source reports that news of the upgrade first broke on the LG Facebook page. It stated that specific details of the release would come in the following weeks, after Google officially releases the Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
It has been established that the first LG smartphone to receive Ice Cream Sandwich will be the Optimus 2x, also known as the G2x. LG confirmed in the announcement that other high-end models in the company's smartphone offerings would be upgraded as well, but no specific models have been named.
LG's statement is in keeping with similar announcements made by other smartphone manufacturers producing Android-powered phones, such as HTC and Motorola, offering teasing details while witholding most of the specific information.
Before the official statement, a report emerged from LG's Facebook representatives in India stating that the Optimus 2x would not receive Ice Cream Sandwich. According to SlashGear, this raised the ire of some customers, who planned to boycott the company's phones and related smartphone accessories.
