LG has put its foot on the accelerator and as we expected, it has pushed the KitKat update to its L9 II and G Pro Lite handsets directly, skipping the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update. This is an interesting move by the company and it might be due to the heavy competition in the Smart phone market and the company would not like to sit back and relax unlike the other brands which are ignoring the update for the high-end devices. This will be exciting news for the L9 II and G Pro Lite smart phone users as they might have expected the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for their device as they came out of the box with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
The Optimus L9 II that was announced last year in the month of August, went for sale in the month of October, this mid range device be getting the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the coming weeks and it was confirmed by an Italian blog called as Androidani. The information was confirmed by the LG Italian officials and also claimed that the LG G2 will also be receiving an update in the coming weeks. Reports from Slovakia claim that the update has already started hitting their L9 II device.
The LG G Pro Lite will be receiving the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the second quarter of this year and the Optimus G is listed for the update in the third quarter. This update will be bringing the latest version of Android with the stability improvements and some bug fixes with performance boost. Most important is that these devices will be receiving the LG’s Knock code feature that lets you unlock your device just by tapping on the screen in a pattern. The Optimus G, G Flex and the LG G2 also received this as an update.
