LG has been beavering away on the Lollipop update for the G3 since even before the official code push to AOSP began. Screenshots of the work in progress popped up just a couple of days ago of the work in progress, and now LG has announced the update is ready to go…at least in Poland.
The update will begin pushing to G3 handsets in Poland this week, followed by ‘other key markets in the near future’. LG will also announce an upgrade schedule for other LG Mobile devices in the near future. This timely response is enough for LG to claim ‘First’ in the race to bring Android 5.0 to non-Nexus hardware. Indeed, if LG begins early this week, they may even beat Google who has yet to start pushing the OTA updates to their Nexus devices.
In terms of what the update will bring, LG advised :
Of course we’ll have to see how it goes here in Australia, with carriers needing to perform their tests first – and none of the carriers are listing the update as even in testing yet. But, if you purchased the phone outright through a retailer, you may get it slightly faster. We’ll be keeping an eye out for this one, KitKat ran just great on the G3, so hopefully LG can make Lollipop fly.
