LG G2 International version is unlikely to see the Android 4.4 KitKat update by January end, suggests a new tweet by the company.
An early tweet by the LG Mobile Saudi Arabia's Twitter handle had claimed that LG is planning to flavour its G2 smartphones with Android 4.4 KitKat update by the end of this January. Now the latest is that the LG G2 users will have to wait for another few months to update their smartphones with Android 4.4 KitKat.
Hours after the first tweet, LG Mobile Saudi Arabia Twitter feed apologized for the wrong information. "We apologize for the previous wrong tweet regarding G2 Kit Kat upgrade schedule, the date was for upgrading the KnockOn feature to Lii series," the tweet read.
Meanwhile, the official Facebook page of LG Italy, while answering a question on Android KitKat update for the LG G2 said: "We have said it several times: by the end of March 2014. Have a nice day."
In December last year, LG had said that the LG G2 smartphones which currently use the Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, will be getting the chocolate-wafer flavour of KitKat OS by the end of December, along with the popular Knock feature. However, it now appears that the update is still far away.
The Kitkat OS will enhance the LG G2 with smart caller id, new Hangout message app, enhanced memory and power management, improved voice search, wireless printing ability and other features.
Earlier this week, a YouTube user named, Ericsmissingteeth posted a video showing the LG G2 running the Android 4.4 KitKat. The 3-minute long video showed the smartphone with changes in the notification bar area and navigation button.
