French carrier SFR has confirmed 4.4.2 update
Remember the LG Optimus G? It was pretty much the Nexus 4 on the component side, but came with a better camera and an LG-flavored operating system. Right now, it's sitting pretty on Android 4.1 for users who haven't abandoned all hope and went the custom ROM route. But all that could be changing.
French carrier SFR has announced the Android 4.4.2 update for the Optimus G coming sometime later this summer. We don't know what — if anything — that will mean for other carriers here in the states and abroad, but it is an inkling of hope.
The Optimus G would probably run KitKat very well. It would be nice to see it get one more big update before LG forgets about it. Let's hope this pans out, and other carriers take LG to task on it.
