AT&T LG Optimus G Pro to Receive Official KitKat Starting Today

Released a little over a year ago, the LG Optimus G Pro is LG’s first entry into the fiercely competitive phablet market segment. Over the past few months, the device has been on a rather protracted journey towards its eventual Android 4.4 KitKat update. Back in late February, we got our hands on a leaked KitKat build for the AT&T variant of the device. And then approximately one month later, the Korean version of the device received its own official update to KitKat.

Of course, it’s expected for the regional device variants in LG’s home region to receive the update first, but the official KitKat update for the Korean model was exactly two months ago. Luckily, the KitKat rollout has now gotten underway for the AT&T variant of the device.

Today’s update comes in at firmware build E98020g (baseband APQ8064/MDM9x15M), and as expected, it packs Android 4.4.2 and a few other goodies. In addition to the expected KitKat-related UI and immersion mode tweaks, AT&T says that today’s update also brings “enhanced processing speed,” stronger security, and battery performance improvements.

The 700+ MB update will begin rolling out today via OTA update. Unfortunately, the firmware has not yet been captured and mirrored, but keep your eyes on these two threads for a mirror. It’s unfortunate that it has taken nearly seven months for this update to reach consumer devices. But as we said earlier today for Sony’s updates, it’s better late than never.

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
