It took up to three leaks to have an official statement but the day has come: LG has finally issued an announcement about Jelly Bean updates in its official Hong Kong facebook page: Three 2012 smartphones will be updated to Jelly Bean during first half this year.
Please find enclosed the post issued by LG Hong Kong in its official facebook page:
Which -translated into English- reads something like:
The following LG Optimus series of smartphones will get an update to Jelly Bean during first half of this year. We'll keep you informed.
1. P880 Optimus 4X
2. P705 Optimus L7
3. P765 Optimus L9
LG has never been among the first to upgrade their handsets, but it seems that things could be changing (for the better) for its customers. The electronics giant might even showcase the update in the next Mobile World Congress (Barcelona, February 2013) together with its new line of smartphones (Optimus G Pro and Optimus G2 among others).
