LG Rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the G3 Beginning Next Week

LG has just informed us via a press release that they will be rolling out the Lollipop upgrade to the LG G3 next week. Starting in Poland. LG is claiming to be first to roll out the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. While Motorola has started their soak test for Lollipop on the Moto X (2014), they haven’t started the official rollout just yet. While LG is starting the rollout in Poland we should be seeing it in other countries shortly later on. For those of us in the US, it’ll be closer to December, due to the carriers.

“LG is absolutely committed to giving our customers the best mobile experiences available and bringing Android Lollipop to G3 owners as soon as possible is a top priority,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new features and improvements in Android 5.0 will bring a whole new user experience to the G3 and make it even better than it already is.”

Android 5.0 Lollipop brings a ton of new features. But for the LG G3, the most notable ones will be the battery and camera features that Google has added. Like Project Volta. The battery life on the Nexus 6 is pretty good, and I’m interested to see how the LG G3 does with the Lollipop update.

It looks like the developer preview at Google I/O this year really helped out the OEMs as we’re already seeing leaks of the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 and other devices with Lollipop on board and this is the third device slated to get Lollipop this month that’s not a Nexus. Wonder if LG is going to beat the Nexus devices this year? It’s quite possible as the Nexus 5 isn’t going to be getting the update til at least November 12th.
