Indeed, LG’s mobile division is quite on a busy schedule lately as they rolled out a number of updates across their range of devices with just this month the company’s latest flagship the LG G3 has just been upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Lately, It’s been a common practice that newer devices would get the updates first and then the previous generations would come next. Assuming the latest leak is true, we’ll be seeing last year’s flagship the G2 to be updated into the more recent version of Android Lollipop. Below is a screenshot which was grabbed allegedly from the LG G2 running Android version 5.0.1.
Additionally, the leaked image also shows LG’s progress with its latest graphical user interface sitting on top of Android. It seems that LG has taken its design cues from Google’s Material design and that has since resulted into positive feedback among users. Worth noting as well is that the screenshot is coming from a F320L variant of the G2 series that comes with an LTE-A support and is only sold in South Korea. As seen recently on LG, software updates are rolled out first from its home country and then other regions will follow after so it’s fairly safe to conclude that international variants of the G2 will soon be able to update on the latest version of Android.
The G2 can still go on par with the latest handsets of today, despite being a year older that the current flagship, the G2 can still bring similar experiences that newer devices could deliver as it features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 GB of RAM along with the fastest LTE connection to date with LTE and LTE-A technology. What we have known so far is that the update should be ready pretty soon.
