It looks like Canadian carriers are still trying hard to offer their customers the latest Android 4.0 ICS updates, but most of them seem to fail.
Shortly after TELUS announced the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for HTC Desire HD has been cancelled due to low performance during testing, another Canadian carrier quietly pushes back the hotly anticipated update.
According to MobileSyrup
, Bell Canada delayed the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for LG Optimus LTE once again.
Initially planned for May, the update was pushed back to June, then to July. Today, a Bell internal document
states that Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will arrive for LG Optimus LTE sometime in August.
Unfortunately, the new estimated release date is subject to change, which means Bell might postpone the update once again in the following weeks.
One of the first LG LTE-enabled smartphones launched in Canada, the Optimus 4G LTE is still stuck on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system
This is one of LG’s high-end smartphones available on the market and is powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented 1GB of RAM.
Another selling point of the Optimus LTE
might be the amazing 4.5-inch HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
Although the smartphone packs only 2GB of internal memory, users can further expand it up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
In the same piece of news, Bell Canada also confirmed more Android 4.0 ICS updates will arrive in August for a few Samsung devices.
The same leaked document states that Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE tablets, and the Galaxy S II HD LTE smartphone will receive the promised Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade starting next month. Stay tuned for more info on the subject.
