    Love the Optimus G Pro.
    So when this new Kit Kat is released will I be able to update the phone to that version ?? How does that work ?? How do I update to it ?? I've never owned an android device before so this is all new to me.
    Also, why do all the android operating systems have to be named after junk food ??

    You should be able to update on your phone over a WiFi or 4G connection. Yo go to Settings>About Phone>Software Update when you hear that KitKat is released for the model.

    I'm not sure on the history of why snack foods are used, but it does make them more memorable than a sequence of numbers, to keep track how recent your version is.

    This is an old post but just for fun ima answer that question about the names. When Android first came out in 2007, They had two versions, Android alpha and Android Beta. The Beta version was the first commercially released OS.

    They had named a few of their OS's after Robots, and subsequently why the Android robot is their staple logo now . But rumor has it the sweet treat names came when the employees at Google started naming the Android versions based on what dessert was being served in the cafeteria at that time.

    Over the years it just stuck and now they choose their names in alphabetical order keeping in tradition of using sweet treat names. Google, no pun intended, is a wonderful thing....lol
