Android 4.4 KitKat Update Confirmed to Roll Out on LG G2 Soon

The Android 4.4 KitKat update will begin rolling out on the LG G2 during the next few weeks.

The news was revealed by French mobile operator SFR on its smartphone software update page. The site did not provide an actual date, but did mention that it would definitely be out in Nov. or Dec.

It will arrive OTA (over-the-air). That is the only information available on the software for the device at this time.

The LG G2 features some impressive specs including a 5.2-inch full HD display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, a microSD slot, a 3,000mAh battery, on screen navigation keys, and Android 4.2.2 with LG's custom skin. The LG G2 is first worldwide-launching smartphone with a Snapdragon 800 processor.

Android 4.4 KitKat was introduced by Google last week alongside the brand new Nexus 5 smartphone.

The software is designed to be installed on a wide range of devices including older models that only have 512MB RAM.

"KitKat streamlines every major component to reduce memory use and introduces new APIs and tools to help you create innovative, responsive, memory-efficient applications," said Google on its developer's website.

The software is designed to protect system memory from apps consuming large amounts of RAM. Android will launch the services serially, or in small groups in order to avoid peak memory demands.

KitKat also adds new capabilities to NFC along with the ability to print any type of content over Wi-Fi or cloud hosted services such as Google Cloud Print.

The official Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (both models), Nexus 10, and Google Play editions of the Galaxy S4 and HTC One will be available in the coming weeks.
