The much expected Google Android 5.0 (Lollipop) is now reportedly live in South Korea, for users of LG's mid-range G2 smartphones.

According to a GSMArena report, that quotes an LG Phone firmware listing, owners of LG G2 should observe the Android 5.0 OS update bearing version number 'V30D' which is said to be the Lollipop build.

LG G2 owners having subscribed to SK Telecom (SKT) and LG U+ networks in South Korea should notice Android 5.0 for their handsets via the over-the-air (OTA) mechanism.

The latest development could indicate an impending global rollout of Android 5.0 for LG G2 users residing in countries other than South Korea.

Also, it is worth noting that Android 5.0 began its rollout for users of Samsung Galaxy S5, starting with South Korean users before gradually expanding to Galaxy S5 users in other countries.

Therefore, it would be worthwhile for LG G2 users (outside of South Korea) to check for new software updates for their handsets.

Earlier, a video showcasing how Android 5.0 will look like on LG G2 had surfaced, which hinted at a new functionality set for the smartphone. Take a look at the video below.
