LG Optimus G Jelly Bean Update Rolls Out to South Korea, US and Europe Update Coming Soon?

While the LG Nexus 4 and LG Optimus G are very similar, they have one major difference: stock Jelly Bean versus LG-skinned ICS. Not everyone cares about having a the latest (stock) version of Jelly Bean, but if you do, this is certainly a pretty big difference.

Although LG’s Optimus G will always have LG skins, it might not have to deal with Ice Cream Sandwich much longer. South Korea is already seeing an update to Jelly Bean, and hopefully that means that Europe and the United States are too terribly far behind.

The update to South Korea is arriving right now both in OTA and over-the-wire methods for those with “LG-F180S” on SK Telecom. The update brings the phone up to Android 4.1. This isn’t as up-to-date as the Nexus 4′s 4.2 Jelly Bean, but it is certainly better than nothing.

For now, there is no word on when the US and Europe will see Jelly Bean arrive to the LG Optimus G, but don’t worry, it will make its way over sooner or later.

Do you own the Optimus G? Do you mind being stuck with ICS or are you desperately awaiting the upgrade to Jelly Bean?

    It’ll be nice to have but it’s not a huge deal. I had JB on my old Nexus S before I switched to the Optimus G. Not much of a difference, although I did like JB a little more over ICS. I’m not sure what I thought of google cards. It was kind of annoying and helpful at the same time.
