With LG having previously promised an LG G3 Lollipop update before the year’s end, the company has now hinted the software patch could be rolled out within a matter of weeks.
Although failing to offer a precise launch date for the LG G3 Lollipop update, the company has narrowed down its previously broad ‘Q4’ timeframe.
“The G3 will be going to Android Lollipop,” Shaun Musgrave, LG’s Product Marketing Manager said this morning.
“This should be happening between the end of this month the beginning of December.”
With Android 5.0 Lollipop having been formally announced alongside the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices last month, Google’s latest OS is expected to hit a flurry of flagship phone in the coming months.
If LG can get Android 5.0 Lollipop on the G3 this month, however, it will become one of the first devices to offer the upgrade - something not lost on the LG G Watch maker.
“That is one of the quickest updates for a top tier device,” Musgrave said of the planned patch release.
He added: “We will definitely be one of the first vendors to introduce Lollipop to our flagship device.
“Because we have a good relationship with Google – and bearing in mind we have two previous devices with them – naturally we would get the ASOP a little earlier than most.
“That’s one of the reasons [we’re able to get the update out so quickly].”
Android 5.0 Lollipop brings a number of new features to Google powered smartphones and tablets. From the new Material design to improved Gmail and notification options, the patch also adds battery life boons and 64-bit CPU support.
