Earlier this month, it was reported that Rogers will roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for a number of its handsets, including the LG G2.
Now, it seems the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update is rolling out on Canadian shores. Users with the LG G2 may want to check their device for the update and see if they can spot the magical notification.
“LG is constantly striving to improve the user experience for its mobile customers and the latest KitKat OS upgrade furthers our commitment to Canadians,” said Ross Snow, vice-president of Mobile Communications, LG Canada. “In addition to introducing new features, the KitKat OS upgrade for the G2 delivers a number of optimizations that enhance the entire mobile user experience. We trust that our customers will enjoy the differentiated value offered by our latest upgrade package.”
Reports suggest the update is rolling out for Rogers and Bell, and is sized at almost 635MB so it might be a good idea to connect to a WiFi network before you download the latest update.
As far as the new features are concerned, the latest KitKat update brings the LG KnockCode feature to the LG G2, as well as battery-saving location mode, performance improvements, Google Cloud Printer support allowing users to print documents via WIFi or Bluetooth, and much more.
If you didn’t get the notification, you can manually check for the update by going to Settings >> About Phone >> Software update.
As for the LG G Flex, the device will launch with the older Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat later in 2014, according to LG.
