LG has announced that the Android 4.4 KitKat update will begin rolling out to the LG G2 later this month. However, the update will initially be available only in Korea, leaving the rest of the G2 owners in markets outside of Korea to wonder when their phones will be updated. LG yesterday posted a blog post stating that Koreans will see KitKat no later than December. That was expected given that the company is much quicker to release products and software updates in its home market. The blog post sadly did not include any mention of when the phone will update in Europe or North America.

Optimistic G2 owners thought that LG might have an Android 4.4 KitKat update ready in early 2014, but representatives from LG's Canadian division later stated that it would not arrive until late Q1 2014, meaning the wait could be until March. Each market is different and has its own timetable, but with some European carriers unclear about when their phones will be updated, it appears likely that Korean G2 owners will enjoy KitKat several weeks sooner than their friends in other locations.
