The LG Optimus L9 was introduced to European markets in the second half of last year as the then newest member of the Optimus L-Series of devices. We first went hands with the LG back at IFA 2012 in Berlin, we found a surprisingly nice mid-range device. Since launch, the L9 has been running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, but now it seems that European owners are getting a Jelly Bean flavored treat on their devices.
According to reports, the update to Android 4.1 is rolling out in the Baltics region, Germany, Spain, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania and for the European Open devices. It can be downloaded via the LG Update Tool as well as OTA, but it’s a pretty weighty one coming in at 575MB. What’s more is the relative speed at which this update has appeared. LG traditionally isn’t too good with software updates, but the L9 has received Jelly Bean now within six months of the device’s launch. Still not amazingly fast, but given LG’s record it’s still pretty impressive.
