The Sprint version of the LG G2 is finally ready for a chocolaty treat, as the carrier has started to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update.

The latest flavor of Android has been slowly rolling out for the LG G2 in the U.S., and its journey is not over yet. The update has already reached the AT&T and T-Mobile versions of the handset, and now it seems that it's Sprint's turn to deliver the goodies.

The LG G2 is the company's flagship smartphone from 2013 and has plenty of neat specs and features that made it worthy of the title. While the tech world is now buzzing in anticipation of the next-generation LG G3, the G2 model still has plenty to offer and has enjoyed great success.

In addition to its high-end specs and features, the LG G2 also took the world by surprise by introducing a unique concept design with its rear key layout. Basically, the rear key concept found on the LG G2 moves to volume rocker and the power button to the back of the handset, allowing users to hold and operate the smartphone more comfortably with just one hand, despite the big display. According to LG, this new layout also allows for a better grip, thus reducing the number of accidental drops.

The LG G2 has been generally well-received, and a software update to the latest version of Android is only bound to make it more attractive. Sprint has announced that it started to roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to its version of the LG G2 on Monday, March 31, and it will roll out the update in stages. As always with such updates, the process unfolds gradually, which means that it may take a few days for the new software version to reach all devices.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Sprint LG G2 will bring several improvements and new features, as well as the usual cocktail of bug fixes. The update is rolling out over the air (OTA), which means that all LG G2 owners on Sprint have to do is follow the on-screen instructions once they receive the update notification.

Those who can't wait any longer to receive the update notification can always manually check whether the update is ready to roll out to their device. To do so, access the phone's Settings menu, select 'System Updates,' tap 'Update LG Software' and hit 'Check Now.' If the update is available, you will be able to get your device to the latest software version.

As Sprint itself points out, it's advisable to make sure the device has at least 50 percent battery life before starting the update process. As always in such cases, it's also preferable to get the update via Wi-Fi, but make sure you have a stable connection.
