LG announces Android 4.0 ICS smartphone upgrade plans

There are hoards of Android users around the world with smartphones of different brands that are waiting in anticipation to see if their device will be upgraded to Android 4.0 when the OS launches. That launch is expected to happen in early 2012. The new OS will bring lots of new features and capability to various devices on the market already. LG has unveiled via Facebook what devices will get the upgrade first.

We have already gone hands on with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the past and liked it. The latest smartphone market to come out and say what devices would be upgraded to ICS is LG. LG's official Facebook post has confirmed that several of the maker's most popular devices will get the ICS upgrade. The first device will be the newer high-end smartphone including the Optimus 2X, Optimus Black, Optimus 3D, and Optimus LTE.

LG also notes that it is working on evaluating ICS to determine if other smartphones in the HTC line can be updated to ICS and still function. LG will post the upgrade schedule in December. Hopefully, that schedule will also show the exact date that the upgrades will be offered. If your existing handset won't get the Android 4.0 update, do you plan to upgrade to a device that will run Android 4.0?
