Following up on the success of last year’s LG G3 smartphone, LG is working on a “radically different” LG G4 for release sometime in 2015. The device may debut as soon as April and new test results suggest LG is on track with development of the device. One of the benefits the company may have when they release the LG G4 is that Android 5.1 will have been available just long enough for it to ship on the G4 out of the box.
The test results for the LG G4 that surfaced on the html5test site show LG running Android 5.1 on the G4. The specific build number is LMY29F, which matches the build number running on the Google Android One smartphone. A newer version, build number LMY47E, of Android 5.1 has also been spotted in the Chromium issue tracker database running on a Nexus 5.
The hardware for the test device is listed with model number LG-H818, which is supposedly the Asian market variant of the LG G4.
