LG has announced that they’re bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop on the LG G3 to more people. After a limited rollout in Poland (likely to test the upgrade in a smaller setting), the company has confirmed that folks with the LG G3 on all three major carriers in South Korea would be receiving the upgrade by the end of this week.
While this doesn’t do much for anyone not within those borders, a South Korean rollout likely means LG feels everything is ready for prime time. Just as with LG smartphone launches in the region, you can think of South Korea as the unofficial kickstart to widespread rollouts in other areas as the weeks and months move on.
Unfortunately there’s no telling how long, exactly, it will take for LG to reach more people. First dibs outside of Korea will likely be awarded to owners of unlocked versions. Carrier rollouts throughout Europe and North America will be sure to follow, though as you know the timeline for that is always iffy. Best not to look too far ahead, we’d say (otherwise the wait becomes a tad bit unbearable). We’ll be reaching out to LG to see if they have anything to share on rollout plans for other regions.
