Sprint’s LG Optimus G Receiving Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update

G 1

Looks like HTC’s One X and the OG RAZR have some company today, as Sprint also announced it will be pushing out Android 4.1.2 to their LG Optimus G owners. The Optimus G (review here) is an important device for a couple main reasons, the biggest being that it most likely helped LG land the deal with Google to create the Nexus 4, which pretty much brought the company back onto the good side of US consumers.

The update will bring everything that we know and love about 4.1 to the device – expandable notifications, Google Now, etc. If you are the owner of this device, go grab it and enjoy that fresh dessert!

    I want the LG lockscreen on my GS3. Hell, I’d take a clock that looks like it.

    Awesome! A lot of people were complaining because it runs on Ice Cream Sandwich..Now that it is on Jelly Bean, the OG will really be a great smartphone. http://www.squidoo.com/lg-optimus-g-review

    I have the Optimus G and I still do not have the update. Plus that clock didn’t come stock for me unless it’s only for Jelly Bean.

      You can switch to that clock through the “Lock Screen Settings”.

      I do like LGs lock screen! The look of the 4 app shortcuts and the way the phone unlocks, I wouldn’t mind having that on my N4.

          Get this crap outta here. 1000 down votes for you.

      You would almost think that there is some backroom deal with Google-et al about updating 2 months prior to I/O. It has been a a little weird. Gnex being the most obvious example. 4.1.1. to 4.2.2 on the Verizon network? That’s outrageous.
