LG begins Android 5.0 Lollipop update for G3, Nexus 5 still in the dust
Google just can’t seem to catch a break. After Motorola dropped a bombshell last night by beginning Lollipop soak tests for the 2014 Moto X, even LG has beaten out Google’s Nexus line in getting the update to the latest version of Android, as it has just announced the beginning of the LG G3 Lollipop update.
The update will begin rolling out this week in Poland, followed shortly by other key markets. Of course, we’re expecting a lengthy wait for United States carrier-branded devices to get in on the fun, but still… even with that ultra-thick software skin, LG was able to bounce back with a super quick update. That’s most certainly a shocker, as we were expecting the G3’s update to have a couple more weeks to cook.
It’s fun to note that this makes two devices now that have beat out the Nexus 5 and 2013 Nexus 7 in getting the Lollipop update (not to mention the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 2012) – the Moto X and LG G3 – so we’re hoping Mountain View will get its act together and begin the rollout of Nexus updates as soon as possible.
Who do you think will be updating next? HTC? Sony? Samsung, perhaps? Sound off in the comments!
