The LG Optimus LTE has begun getting an upgrade to Android 4.0 in Korea, following LG's promise that it would update three of its phones in June.

The Ice Cream Sandwich update LG promised in June is here, at least for one of its phones. We've gotten confirmation that the Optimus LTE software upgrade, which adds Android 4.0 as well as the Optimus UI 3.0, is now live for phones in Korea. LG PR rep Ken Hong has posted a picture of his Optimus LTE running Android 4.0.4, and we're keeping our eye out for similar updates elsewhere. Besides the Optimus LTE, LG has previously said that the Vu and Optimus LTE Tag will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich in June.

LG has been slow but steady about announcing Ice Cream Sandwich rollouts, but we're still in the dark when it comes to American variants of its phones. The LG Nitro HD, for example, is just the Optimus LTE for American carriers, but users are still stuck on Gingerbread. The Spectrum, meanwhile, has gotten a recent upgrade... to 2.3.6.
