With Android Ice Cream Sandwich just around the corner all the talk has been surrounding which current handsets will be getting the Android 4.0 update, and LG are no exception
"LG confirms today that the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS will be initially available for the following high-end LG smartphones which were introduced this year: the Optimus 2X, the Optimus Black, the Optimus 3D and the Optimus LTE."
Posted by LG on their official Facebook page the statemtent went on to confirm that this was not the final list with the company looking to see if it was possible to add any more of their handsets to the list.
"We are also continuing to evaluate the ICS OS to determine whether it is compatible with the functionality, features and performance of other LG smartphones to make the ICS OS available on as many LG smartphones as possible."
Earlier this month the company faced severe criticism after LG's Indian Facebook team seemingly issued a official confirmation that the LG Optimus 2X would not be getting the latest version of Android when it's launched later this month.
Since then the company has come under serious criticism from customers with many Optimus 2X users even stating they would never be buying LG again. With LG confirming the upgrade however it should put all those minds to rest safe in the knowledge that ICS is on its way.

Once boasted as the 'first dual-core smartphone' the LG Optimus 2X was definitely ahead of the game when it launched with it's dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip and mini-HDMI output, however found itself suffering from running only Android 2.2. What it lacked in OS however it made up for in speed and style with a premium design and a bright screen that showed off its processing potential.
With handsets like the Sony Ercisson Xperia Arc already confirmed to potentially get Ice Cream Sandwich eyes will now be turning on LG and the remaining handset manufacturers to see if they follow suit.
