In spite of the sheer majority of the news coming out today focusing around the now availability of Samsung’s latest flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, as well as HTC’s latest offering, the HTC One M9. The rest of the news is continuing. In particular, that of the latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update and who is getting it. Although, the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and One M9 all come running Lollipop out of the box, there are those current device owners who are still waiting on their lollipop update to arrive.

Well, in respect of Lollipop, the latest news is that there are a few LG tablets which are expected to get their update in the coming days. In fact, the date being of arrival for the update is April 12th. The three devices in question are the LG G Pad range, including the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.3 and G Pad 10.1. According to LG, all three of these devices will see their update becoming live from April 12th. These updates will be coming in the form of an OTA which means it will most likely be staggered and not all users will get the update at the same time. Therefore, if you do own one of these devices, then just be informed that the OTA is beginning to be pushed out starting from the 12th.

However, LG also does state that there will be a downloadable update ready to be pulled and pushed to your LG G Pad device from Sunday. So if you do not want to wait for the OTA then it is assumed you will be able to head straight over to the website and grab your download to manually update. Changes noted by LG include improved UI design, new notifications, better battery management and greater computing power. The news of the update should be welcomed news for those who own one of the LG G Pad devices, as currently it seems only the LG G Pad 8.3 GPe is the only device to so far be bumped up to Lollipop. If you do own one, then keep a look out for your update over the weekend.
