A Reddit thread posted Friday quotes a few comments in French from LG France regarding Android 4.4’s release date for the Optimus G. The user shared his conversation with the Facebook page of LG France, and translated in English, he was told that “an update to (Android 4.4 Kit Kat) is scheduled for October.” On one end, LG France’s comments are consistent with a report from FRAndroid claiming that the French Optimus G would be upgraded to Android 4.4 this month. And the Redditor who shared the conversation had made it a point to ask the LG France Facebook admin twice whether Android 4.4’s rollout/release date for the Optimus G would indeed fall in October, to which LG France replied in the affirmative.
However, much discretion is required when it comes to this new report, mainly because the 2012 LG Optimus G moving up from Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to Android 4.4 Kit Kat sounds implausible and too good to be true. The Optimus G is still on Android 4.1 in the United States, France and all other regions where it is available. Adding to the reasons why the report may be too good to be true is LG’s history as being a bit slow when rolling out Android version updates, plus the known inaccuracy of social media administrators when communicating release dates and such. As Google may invariably focus on its Nexus devices first when updating to Android 4.4 Kit Kat, the proverbial grain of salt may not be enough; instead, readers may want to take the report with a large container of salt.
I know it's not gonna happen but a guy can dream right.
