LG G2 Android 4.4 update demoed on video: the same, but better

The LG G2 shipped last year with Android 4.2.2, and an update to KitKat has been promised by the “late Q1,” which roughly translates to the end of March.

The company’s flagship has already been updated to Android 4.4 in its native Korea, however, and an English-speaking citizen has screencasted some of the new features. While there aren’t a lot of visual changes — the status bar is now white, and the notification shade is less ugly, but still too busy — users can expect a modicum of improvements in a variety of places.

For example, Immersive Mode is now supported on the beautiful 5.2-inch Full HD display, and there is a wireless printing option appended to the Settings. Users can also select a default messaging app and it appears there are improvements to the camera speed.

While the Android 4.4 won’t change the fact that LG chose to controversially place the device’s power and volume buttons on the back, it’s nice to see the company working to keep its flagship updated.
