After Samsung rolled out the Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) OS update to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge users in the US, its South Korean rival LG has confirmed that it will not seed Google's firmware upgrade to users of its flagship G4 device.

Wireless carrier O2 posted on Facebook that it will not release the Android 5.1.1 to LG G4 users having subscribed to its network in the UK.

Further, LG's official Greek unit also confirmed via Facebook that Android 5.1.1 builds will not be released to G4 users in Greece. Previously, LG Greece had confirmed that users of the older G3 flagship device would not receive Android 5.1 OS update.

Arrival of Android M

With both O2 and LG Greece having confirmed that Android 5.1.1 will not roll-out to LG handsets at least for the time being, rumours suggest that the handsets may receive Google's newly announced Android M.

Considering the fact that the South Korea-based company had seeded Android 5.0 to its G3 users (running Android 4.4.2 out of the box) bypassing Android 4.4.4, LG could do the same with G4 as well.

Meanwhile, Sony and HTC have confirmed that they would seed Android M, as soon as it is made available, to their new flagship devices.
