LG has announced via their Facebook page that Jelly Bean updates for the Optimus 4X HD, Opiitmus L7, and Optimus L9 are nearing the final stages of development before rolling out to users. The news comes by way of LG’s Hong Kong branch and covers versions of the phones carrying the model numbers P880 (4X HD), P705 (L7), and P765 (L9).
The timing of the announcement is fitting. As LG prepares to launch its next generation of smartphones at Mobile World Congress, the arrival of Android 4.1 makes an appropriate sendoff for older models. Even if that sendoff took quite a while to arrive.
