OTA update expected mid summer
LG has reportedly posted source code for the upcoming Optimus S Android 2.3 update ahead of the formal rollout. Despite the developer tidbits for Sprint's Optimus variant, the carrier has yet to announce a specific date for the Gingerbread OTA release.
The aging Optimus S brings an entry-level feature set, with a 3.2-inch 320x480 touchscreen and a 600MHz processor. Unofficial Gingerbread builds have already surfaced for the device, however users have been forced to wait for a stable release.
LG has posted the Gingerbread open source files on its global support site. The official Gingerbread releases is expected to arrive sometime in September. [via Android Central]
