LG accidentally teases Jelly Bean Android 4.3

LG accidentally teases Jelly Bean Android 4.3Jelly Bean Android 4.3 was one of many things that didn’t actually appear at Google I/O 2013, contrary to promises from the rumour mill, though it’s largely accepted that it’s on the tip of Google’s tongue.

As such, the mobile press is quick to jump on even the faintest whiff of Android 4.3, and LG resultantly found itself under the spotlight with the, er, Optimus L7 II Dual.

You might recall the LG Optimus L7 II Dual originally popped up at the end of January, as a slightly enhanced LG Optimus L7 with dual-SIM compatibility.

Probably fair to say the LG Optimus L7 II Dual isn’t a massively exciting phone (not to mention the terribly convoluted name), and it’s far from top contender for Android 4.3.

However, eagle-eyed Engadget spotted a tech spec page listing the LG Optimus L7 II Dual with just that. What the…? Has LG landed some sort of mid-range Android 4.3 coup?

Well, no. It was thought to be a typo, and LG has indeed since updated its page to show the LG Optimus L7 II Dual with – wait for it – Jelly Bean Android 4.1. What’s a couple of versions of Android between friends?

Right, so this isn't news at all. This "story" can be summed up in "LG made a typo, which they've now fixed".
