LG Optimus G could be updated to Jelly Bean as early as December

LG’s Optimus G hasn’t even hit the stores yet in Canada, but LG is promising a quick turnaround for that highly-coveted Jelly Bean update.

The company issued a press release stating that certain models, such as the Optimus LTE 2, would begin next month, while the Optimus G will start in December. This doesn’t mean, of course, that Canada will be a part of that first round — lots of things go into an update like this, one of which is carrier testing and approval — but it does give us hope that we’ll see Jelly Bean on the Optimus G sooner than later.

The Canadian version will be the same as the international one — 4.7-inch 1280×768 display, 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM — but for one significant change: our model will have an 8MP camera, whereas the international version will sport a 13MP module. Sad, but true.

LG’s flagship device should arrive sometime in November, and Rogers just stated that it will be $129.99 on a 3-year term.
