If you picked up an LG Optimus 2X last year, you'll already be acquainted with the frustrating experience of waiting for much-needed OS updates. The world's first dual-core smartphone shipped with Android 2.2 Froyo in early 2011, and it's been behind the curve ever since.
Optimus 2X owners had been waiting patiently for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive, only to be told (after months of delays) that the update had been canned, leaving the phone stuck on Gingerbread.
However, it now seems that statement may have been made prematurely, as LG Mobile Korean today took to its official Twitter feed to inform one 2X owner that the update had merely been held up in testing, rather than canceled. Of course, this statement only applies to Korean phones, and the fate of ICS on the Optimus 2X elsewhere remains unknown. Nevertheless, the fact at least one version of the phone is getting ICS surely bodes well for 2X owners elsewhere. That said, owners of the U.S. variant, the T-Mobile G2X, probably shouldn't hold their breath.
