Here’s some good news for all those who own a LG Optimus L9 and have been waiting patiently for a new Jelly Bean refresh for a while now.
LG is finally rolling out the long-awaited Android Jelly Bean update for the Optimus L9 that will now offer the device all the goodies and features that are expected to arrive with the new refresh, according to reports.
The Android Jelly Bean update for the LG Optimus L9 is currently available in the following locations: Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Portugal, and the Baltic region.
As of now, this eagerly-anticipated software upgrade is still not available in the U.S., although it won’t be exaggerating to imagine T-Mobile rolling it out at some point in the future. The only question that remains here is when exactly that update will arrive.
The Jelly Bean update has arrived less than four months after the phone eventually hit the market, which is probably a first for the manufacturer. It's currently available via OTA or via the LG Update tool and weighs in at 575MB. It brings Project Butter UI optimizations and Google Now to the Optimus L9.
The LG Optimus L9 is a mid-ranger that was launched back in November last year, and comes with a 4.7-inch qHD IPS screen and uses a 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor with a PowerVR SGX540 GPU and 1GB RAM. Its other features include a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture, 4GB of internal storage, and support for extra storage space by way of microSD cards.
The Android Jelly Bean improves on the speed and simplicity of Android 4.1 and includes all new features like Photo Sphere, alongside a completely redesigned camera app, new Gesture Typing keyboard, Google Now with all new cards, and much more.
The refresh is also known to improve performance throughout the system, including faster orientation changes, quicker switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system via vsync and triple buffering.
It also offers a more reactive and uniform touch responses, and makes the user’s Android device even more responsive by boosting the device’s CPU instantly when the user touches the screen, and turns it down when the user doesn’t need it to improve battery life.
