LG Electronics is set to release its Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade for the company’s latest flagship device the LG G3. The news broke out right after a video went online which shows the handset running on the alleged OS. LG has quickly responded and has now confirmed the availability of the upgrade to release anytime this week.

LG will be bringing new updates to the G3 including new animations, Material design language, updated notification area and major UI changes, improve security and better pairing between devices including but not limited to Bluetooth devices as well as LG’s own Smartwatches. The update will also introduce Google’s new ART runtime which will improve the overall performance of apps.

Unlike any other manufacturer, LG will be one of the first to release a major OS upgrade to their devices and almost as quick as Google itself, but unlike Google who’s releasing a stock version of the OS to its Nexus and Google Play Edition devices, LG is making its own customization which sits on top of the OS itself making it more impressive for a company to promptly release a major upgrade despite the additional work that it do with the stock OS. The update will roll out in phases which starts in Poland and then to other regions right after. though limited for the G3 of now, the Korean tech firm is also preparing the Lollipop upgrade to other LG devices which the company is going to announced in the near future when the Lollipop upgrade is available in the local markets.
