In late 2014, Google announced the launch of its latest mobile OS, namely Android Lollipop 5. Since then, Android smartphone users have been eagerly waiting to experience the feature rich OS in their devices. Sadly, Lollipop rollout has not been a smooth sailing event, for most mobile manufacturers. Motorola and LG were among the entities that promised early Lollipop rollout for their device users.
However, not all models from LG got the OS update simultaneously. The current flagship G3 got it first while G2 users had to wait amidst anxiety.
As it is, the LG G2 was released in late 2013 with Android Kitkat 4.4 onboard. LG managed to fix certain usability issues in the handset with OTA updates but the users became listless waiting for the Lollipop update in most countries. As per reports, there are still a few network and usability bugs that G2 users are facing.
These are likely to be ironed out by the imminent Lollipop update. The good news is that the much awaited Lollipop OTA update has started rolling out. So far, the LG G3, Motorola Moto G, X and Google Nexus branded handsets have received the OS update.
It was in August 2014 that LG confirmed that the G2 will be eligible for Lollipop. The update has not started for all G2 users at the same time though. In recent times, some videos of the G2 with Android Lollipop running made appearance online.
This strengthened the buzz of an imminent OTA rollout for the device. As per the latest news, South Korean users are the lucky lot among G2 users to receive the OTA Lollipop update.
While the G2 users in South Korea are rejoicing over the rollout of Lollipop OTA update, LG is mum on timing of rollout for users in other countries and regions. Experts think that the G2 users will get the much awaited update only after Lollipop rollout for G3 users is complete. LG started rolling out the same update for G3 users late last year but some of them are yet to receive it.
