The first bunch of phones to receive the ICS update will be the LG Optimus LTE, LG Prada 3.0, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus Sol, LG myTouch Q, and the LG Eclipse. Q3 2012 will see the following handsets receive ICS: LG Optimus 3D, LG Optimus Black, LG Optimus Big, LG Optimus Q2, and LG Optimus EX.
The rollout is expected to be global, with exact dates to vary by region and carrier. It's currently unknown if the re-branded handsets will get some ICS lovin', with the T-Mobile G2X (Optimus 2X), LG Thrill (Optimus 3D), and LG Nitro HD (Optimus LTE) on that list.
LG have also said they are "taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner" and will be providing further updates, such as specific release dates, as they become available.
