In the midst of all the excitement surrounding the latest version of Android, Lollipop, LG came forward and said that they were going to be one of the first manufacturers to release an update to their devices, starting with the flagship G3. Of course, the excitement soon died down when we realized that the update was to hit Poland before anywhere else. Not to take anything away from Poland of course, but this is a relatively small market for LG and it doesn’t exactly scream confidence when they start with such a small area for a big update like this. Still, it would seem that their little experiment has worked and now the word is that LG is ready to roll out their update in their home market of South Korea.
Our friends over at GforGames have picked up on some murmurs from LG’s social page in South Korea that the company is hoping to release the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop on all major networks in the region very shortly. While this might not mean much to us here in the West, it is a big step when it comes to updates. After all, if LG is confident enough to roll out their update in their most important market then it shouldn’t take too much longer to hit the rest of the world. Android 5.0 Lollipop is a pretty big update and as we’ve seen from the update that rolled out in Poland, it seems that LG has embraced the larger changes while keeping the overall look and feel of their skin on top of Android. Which isn’t a bad thing, after all a speedy update is always welcome.
For those of you using an LG G3 in Europe, I should say those adventurous among you, you can always flash LG’s Lolliop ROM for the G3 from XDA here, but if you’re in the US and you’re happy waiting the sign that it’s rolling out in South Korea should mean that it shouldn’t be much longer now.
