Earlier in the month, LG surprised many Android fans by leapfrog-ging Nexus device OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in the race of releasing latest Google mobile OS 5.0 Lollipop to G3 in Poland. Now, the company has reportedly initiated the roll-out process in its home country, South Korea.
The new LG G3 has begun receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop via OTA (Over-The-Air) through South Korea's top three carrier networks and has also been made available as download file at the company website (HERE) for people who are familiar with manual firmware installation.
"(Company) will continue to strengthen cooperation with Google customers" and "will strive to deliver the best possible service," said Dr Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
More details related to Android 5.0 update for G3 in other international markets as well as other LG devices are expected to be announced in the coming days as the new software becomes available in local markets.
Since the update is released in phases, it will take some time to reach all corners of world. Until then, LG G3 owners can check for OTA updates manually on their device by going to:
Settings >> About phone >> System updates >> check now
The Google's new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS comes with an overhauled design language material design, bringing in interactive user interface, visually appealing graphic design (with bold colours & typography), tactile surface, fluid animation features, replacement of Dalvik with ART as its default runtime and many more tweaks for performance enhancements.
