After they were made official back during Mobile World Congress, the LG G Stylo and LG Leon both launched on T-Mobile only a few months later. Offering a fair mix of mid-range to entry level specs, the handsets came out of the box running Android 5.0 Lollipop. It wasn’t bad, especially given the amount of devices only recently receiving Lollipop. Being that these weren’t flagship devices, we didn’t think LG would make these devices a very high priority when it came to pushing out Android updates. Looks like we were wrong.
In what can only be described as a refreshing turn of events, it seems both devices are now receiving updates to Android 5.1.1 — the absolute latest version of Android currently available. In fact, it’s a more current version of Android than even the LG G4 is running, which will reportedly stay on 5.1 until Android M rolls around (we don’t think that extra .0.1 would amount to much anyway).
Android 5.1 brings a few new additions to the core Android OS with T-Mobile saying owners should expect a boost in battery life, especially when using WiFi Calling. They also mention that the updates are available right now, but only over WiFi. So, if you want to get the jump on the update, hop into your Settings app and pull it right now.
