The LG Optimus G is getting Android 4.4 KitKat update.
Included in the deal was LG’s Knock Code that allows users to unlock their phone with just a few taps on the screen. In addition, there’s support for the new ART runtime and improved performance thanks to the number of changes and tweaks KitKat brings to the mix.
The Optimus G uses the same hardware platform as the Nexus 4, so it should have no problems running the latest version of Android. It’s up to LG to optimize its own software and make sure it runs smoothly on KitKat.
