Earlier this month we reported that LG was all set to start rolling out Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the LG Optimus 3D full of enhancements and 3D specific improvements. That update was started yesterday the 21st and should be hitting Optimus 3D handsets everywhere right now and all week.

3D glasses are “not included” because we don’t need them here with this glasses-free dual-core powered 3D smartphone (see our review). According to many users that are finally starting to get the update over on XDA Developers the update doesn’t actually seem all that different. The announcement from LG said the device would see some major enhancements to 3D but so far we aren’t hearing about anything too special.

Either way the update is available now and should be rolling out to handsets over the next few days. As usual you can manually pull the update by going to settings > about phone and manually checking for updates. For those not wanting to wait even for that the XDA thread in the source link below has full instructions for the latest OTA for many different regions. Not to mention download files, and even the one-click root method that also works for the newest Android 2.3 on the Optimus 3D. So enjoy those Gingerbread cooking in full 3D while you wait for some Ice Cream Sandwich.

Let us know how the update goes in the comments below — Enjoy!
