AT&T LG Optimus G Pro Indigo Black

Much of the recent LG news has been focused on the upcoming G3, but today I’ve got some exciting news for folks that are already a part of the Life’s Good crew.

AT&T announced today that starting today, May 21, it’s pushing an over the air update to the LG Optimus G Pro. The update bumps the Optimus G Pro up to Android 4.4 and includes restyled status and navigation bars, battery performance improvements and more. Here’s AT&T’s full list of changes:

  • Restyled status and navigation bars
  • New full-screen mode
  • Stronger security
  • Battery performance improvements
  • Google Cloud Printer support
  • Enhanced processing speed

The update is a beefy one, weighing in at around 700MB-800MB, so you may want to connect to Wi-Fi before trying to pull it from the sky. Just in case you’re feeling impatient, though, it’s worth noting that AT&T says that the update “will not count against your data usage.”

The LG Optimus G Pro isn’t exactly the freshest Android phone on the block, having launched on AT&T a little over a year ago and since having been replaced by the LG G Pro 2. Its owners aren’t being forgotten, though, and it’s great to see AT&T and LG treating those folks to a tasty KitKat snack.

If you’re rocking an AT&T-branded Optimus G Pro, you can manually check for this update by heading into Settings > General > About phone > Software update > Update now. Don’t forget to come back once you get it installed so that you can share your first impressions!
