South Korean company LG is now among those handset makers praised for how fast it delivers Android updates for its devices.

Obviously, that doesn’t mean the company should not announce its release schedule for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates, even though we’re not sure LG will be able to keep up with the deadlines confirmed today.

All in all, LG has just revealed that the upcoming Optimus G, the company’s new Android flagship smartphone, will receive an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update at some point in December.

For those unaware, LG Optimus G is expected to be launched on the market in late October with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.

Android enthusiasts who currently own an LG Optimus Vu smartphone will be happy to know that handset maker promised a Jelly Bean upgrade would be available for download from Q1 2013.

Although this is a little vague for the moment, we’re pretty sure more details on the exact release date will leak online in the following weeks.

More good news has just been announced by LG, as Optimus LTE II users will receive the hotly-anticipated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update next month.

The update is expected to bring important UI improvements as well as a various enhancements in touch responsiveness. In fact, the update is said to include lots of the Optimus G innovative software, such as the Q Slide app.

Last but not least, LG Optimus Vu II will get its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in Q1 2013, just like the original Optimus Vu.

So far, these are the only smartphones that have been confirmed for a Jelly Bean upgrade, but we suspect LG will add more devices on the list in the following months so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
