Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop has been announced and soon enough the LG G3 will be getting the latest version of Android before 2015. The South Korean giant has revealed that Android 5.0 Lollipop will be landing in Q4 later this year.
The unprecedented announcement came via the firm's German Facebook page. The company made note of the G3, which will supposedly be getting the update faster than other premium handsets available onto market.
The post read," Hello everyone, we want to inform you hereby, that it upgrade to Android 5.0 2014 will be published lollipop for the LG G3 in the fourth quarter."
The original G2 "will follow," according to the company's German Facebook page, which means the device will probably get Lollipop sometime early next year.
"LG G2 will follow"> The upgrade package for the LG G2 will follow," the post continued.
In fact, a few days back, we heard rumors that LG was working on getting the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update out to its premium lineup before the end of 2014, and now it's official.
Google's Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will get Android 5.0 Lollipop update on November 3. Similarly, Samsung is expected to push Lollipop update on its Galaxy S5 in December. Asus, another global player, might update its ZenFone series to the latest Android version in the first half of 2015.
