LG G2 KitKat update tipped for 'late Q1' arrival in Canada

While manufacturers like HTC, Sony and Motorola have been pretty forthcoming with their Android 4.4 KitKat update plans, we've yet to hear much out of LG, which launched its latest handset this fall on Android 4.2.2. But now LG Canada has given G2 owners their first inkling of when to expect that KitKat update.

MobileSyrup reports that it's been told by LG Canada rep Court Elliot that Canadian G2s should receive the update around "late Q1" next year. The Android 4.4-based firmware will apparently be offered to all Canadian carriers at the same time, though this doesn't guarantee a concurrent rollout across all operators.

Late Q1 is a ways off, especially considering the likes of Motorola and HTC are slating updates for January, but at least it gives G2 owners a rough idea of what to expect. Of course there's also no guarantee that other countries' G2s will be held to this schedule, as things often get messy when carriers become involved.
