LG had already stated that it planned to upgrade its 2011 high-end Optimus smartphones to ICS, and on Monday it gave more clarity to that schedule. The LG Optimus LTE, Prada phone by LG 3, the LG Optimus 2X, the LG Optimus Sol, the LG myTouch Q, and the LG Eclipse will begin seeing the ICS upgrade in Q2 2012.
In Q3 2012, the LG Optimus 3D, the LG Optimus Black, the LG Optimus Big, the LG Optimus Q2, and the LG Optimus EX will be upgraded. LG noted that timing for the upgrades depends on carriers and regions, so the upgrades may arrive at different times for each country.
However, some LG owners will be pretty annoyed: waiting until Q3 for an ICS upgrade could amount to about nine months, an extremely long time in the lifespan of an Android phone, which some users seem to pace at six months TOTAL.
LG noted that additional details will be announced as each upgrades' launch date nears.
