LG electronics has confirmed the Android 5.0 Lollipop roll-out for its flagship smartphone.
The company has announced that the highly anticipated Android 5.0 upgrade will start rolling out for LG G3 starting this week with users in Poland being the lucky ones to get it first. This will be followed by other key markets in the near future.
While this makes LG the first global manufacturer to offer the Lollipop upgrade in 2014, the company promises to subsequently bring the software update schedule for other LG devices.
The latest Android version delivers a host of improvements including a new design language with additional depth, shadows and animations for the LG G3. Notifications also see improvements with a new layout and colour scheme and it will be on the new lock screen.
Present in the upgrade is a new security feature to strengthen connectivity between devices, enabling users to unlock their smartphones when it is near a pre-registered Bluetooth device such as LG G Watch or, G Watch R. Lollipop firmware also introduces Android Runtime software to improve performance.
The company notes that additional details related to LG devices will be announced in the near future once the upgrade becomes available.
"LG is absolutely committed to giving our customers the best mobile experiences available and bringing Android Lollipop to G3 owners as soon as possible is a top priority. The new features and improvements in Android 5.0 will bring a whole new user experience to the G3 and make it even better than it already is," said Dr Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
