LG Optimus L7 II Dual Page Lists Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as OS

It seems that the LG staff has made some sort of mistake because if you visit the official product page pf the Optimus L7 2 Dual you will see that the device is running a totally unexpected operating system.
The handset is the dual-SIM variant of the Optimus L7 2, which was announced at MWC 2013 earlier this year and on LG’s official website it’s listed as running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Unfortunately we don’t have more information about Android 4.3, thus there are two possibilities. The first one is that LG has confirmed the arrival of the new version of Android, or the person who manages the product page of the LG Optimus L7 2 Dual has made a typing mistake, which is more likely.
When the Optimus L7 2 was announced, the company said that it will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, so we expected to see it on the Dual version as well. However, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is not listed in the list of features of the Dual. Instead, the operating system that the handset will supposedly run is again listed as being Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Also on LG’s website, flagship smartphones such as the Nexus 4 and the Optimus G are listed with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Plus for the former, and Android 4.1 jelly bean for the latter, thus no sign of Android 4.3 there.
It’s hard to imagine that a phone maker would launch a smartphone running an OS that has not been announced by Google yet, thus l think this is simply a mistake.
Android 4.3 has been mentioned in many recent reports. It us said to be the next version of Google’s OS, and it’s supposed to be launched this summer. Even though Google did not announce it when it held the I/O event, Android 4.3 has spotted in several server logs, on a Nexus 4, as well as on a Google support page.
All in all, I don’t think we’re gonna see the actual Android 4.3 before Google officially unveils it.
Update: LG has modified the features of the device and it’s now listed as running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
