Twitter account quashes Android 4.0 speculation
In yet another reversal, LG Canada has announced that the Optimus 2X will not be receiving an update to Android 4.0. In a tweet responding to a customer question, the company's Canadian arm clarified that a previous announcement from LG had in fact been a "general statement from HQ." LG Canada had nothing more to add on the matter.
Since October of last year, the future of the Optimus 2X has been in question. Specs-wise, the device seems capable of running Android 4.0, but LG India announced in late October that the Optimus 2X wouldn't get 4.0. A few days later, LG apparently reversed that announcement, saying that the upgrade would be coming to the Optimus 2X.
@PaddyJJ16 The Optimus 2X will not be receiving the ICS upgrade. The original upgrade announcement was a general statement issued from HQ.— LG Canada (@LGCanada) July 25, 2012
