Manufacturers are currently considering their game plans for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), and HTC recently committed to the update after several days of humming and hawing.
However, one handset that won’t be getting the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment is the Google Nexus One, and it looks like it’ll be joined on the bench by the LG Optimus 2X.
Facebook user Anant Nawalgaria asked Life’s Good: “IS the lg optimus 2x eligible for a android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich software upgrade?”
Unfortunately for LG Optimus 2X users, the answer was: “Dear Anant, we will not be introducing Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich updates on LG Optimus 2X P990. Keep watching this space for further updates.”
The LG Optimus 2X was revealed late last year as the world’s first dual-core smarthphone. It received decent reviews, but soon after launch was plagued with Black Screen of Death issues.
It’s not clear if LG will pursue Ice Cream Sandwich action with its other dual-core flagship, the LG Optimus 3D.
