LG has made a 360 turn by announcing that the Optimus 2X will actually get the ICS upgrade - squashing all rumours that LG will not be updating their high-end handsets to ICS. LG quotes:
LG is currently in the process of planning the ICS OS update for the LG Optimus 2X as well as other LG high-end smartphones. Detailed information on the ICS OS update schedule for specific models will be announced, once the ICS OS is publicly released by Google.
So - to all of you LG optimus 2X owners, don't worry, it'll come in time. Just need to be a little patient that's all.
Thanks to Jim for the tip!
