LG has begun the roll out of the Android 4.4.2 KitKat for the LG G2 in Korea, which was expected to kick off last week. Despite a week late, it should come a good news for those rocking a LG G2 in Korea.
Now that it’s rolling out in Korea, I think it won’t be long before the update starts rolling out for the rest of globe, possibly by the end of this quarter.
There’s no word about the changelog, but the update will support ART or Android Runtime, an improved runtime that replaces Dalvik. For those who don’t know, with ART, the application bytecode is compiled when the app is installed on the handset, while for Dalvik, the bytecode of the application is not compiled until you open the application. This, in return, will speed up the app process. Additionally, it seems users have the option to select between ART and Dalvik, which is a good thing for some people.
For the international roll out, we previously heard from LG Italy that the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the country’s variant will roll out by March, and if they are correct, it shouldn’t take a long time for the update to arrive in other regions.
We’ll update you if there’s a word about the roll out of Android 4.4.2 KitKat for LG G2 in other regions.
