T-Mobile Relaunches LG G2X with 2.3 Gingerbread

July 26, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A few weeks back we saw the LG G2X whisked off the shelves by T-Mobile. The device wasn’t even seen in the carrier’s sites and they said they are taking it off the shelves because of incoming complaints about its quality.

T-Mobile must have discontinued it to allow LG some time for coming up with a fix for the issues. And now, that time period is apparently over as we hear the carrier is gearing up to hoist the G2X back onto the market

The relaunch might be carrying a treat in the form of a Gingerbread update. We heard the phone will be releasing pre-installed with Android 2.3.

We also heard some T-Mobile stores to get the Android cargo as early as this week. The carrier, reportedly, will be airing out the update in the coming weeks to G2X users still on Android 2.2, so if you own one, then keep your eyes open.

The update should relieve you of some of the bug attacks your phone had been subjected to. We haven’t received any details on the specific remedies the update will bring along, but it sure is a breather.

If you are impatient in getting it later, you could try to upgrade it from the LG Mobile Updater. But we recommend the OTA, since that makes the update official.

You should be getting the G2x Gingerbread update here when it rolls out, and you might have to link up your phone with your desktop for upgrading. Anyway, it’s good news we have, so get ready for the 2.3.
