The LG G2 is by now a 2 year old flagship that most people have forgotten about. Fortunately those who do still remember – most probably owners of the device – Android 5.1.1 for the LG G2 is allegedly going to be released for the device in the coming months. This marks about a 6 month gap between Android 5.0 and Android 5.1.1 being released on the device, and is great news for existing and prospective LG owners who are wondering whether the Korean manufacturer is going to keep supporting their aging devices.

Unfortunately for LG G3 owners, there’s still no news of their update to Android 5.1.1, with the only news being rumours that it won’t be getting Android 5.1.1 in favour of Android M. This actually marks the second update to the LG G2 that the LG G3 hasn’t received with the first being Android 5.0.2 and now Android 5.1.1 – as an owner of the LG G3, that really grinds my gears. But really, this should be a celebration for LG G2 owners whose device is getting a much needed breath of fresh air in a smartphone market that waits for nobody. Based on the rumour, the update is going to be rolled out in the next two months – but remember that carrier variants will take some time after that to “appropriate” the update for your device.

LG G2 to reportedly receive an update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop


lgg2_070415

It seems that LG isn’t done with the LG G2 quite yet, as the device, according to a report from AndroidPit, will receive an update to Android 5.1.1.  According to the LG software development employee that confirmed the claim, the update is already in the making and will soon be released to the LG G2. The update will not only bring firmware upgrades, but will also include LG’s custome Android user interface, LG UX 4.0. This means that the LG G2 will also have new software features similar to the ones found in the flagship LG G4.

The source claims that the update won’t be released for another 2 months. In addition, if you live in the US, the update might come even later due to US carriers’ time-consuming approval process.

Report: LG G2 to receive Android Lollipop 5.1.1 in the next two months


lg-g2-5

For reasons beyond our control, and at times in defiance of logic, flagships of the past are often doomed to live out their days with antiquated OS builds. Tech-savvy consumers have become progressively more upset as time has passed, and indeed several OEMs are now (mostly) listening. LG has been one of the most receptive, and users of its 2013 flagship, the G2, were no doubt thrilled when Lollipop arrived on their device’s digital doors. Now it seems, it’s time to move up, as a new report alleges the G2 will be receiving Android 5.1.1 in the near future.

LG-G2-Android-5-1-1-w782 Android PIT

The source of the story claims that an unnamed insider working inside LG’s software development division has supplied this information, along with an expected roll-out within the next couple of months. Along with the new version number, the update is also said to bring with it a new user interface along with some other features seen in the G4.

We will update this story in the event any new information is leaked within the next few weeks. Judging by the lead-up to Lollipop on the G3, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a video leak on YouTube, or some additional specifics. Please keep in mind that even if the unlocked G2 receives the update, there is no telling when – or if – your carrier will make the update happen, so please take this report with not only a pinch of salt, but also a dose of reality. Now if only another Korean company could decide what to do with its’ former flagship…

LG seems to be doing their best to keep their current, and past, devices updated. Especially on AT&T. The Now Network has pushed out the Lollipop update for the LG G3, while not everyone has it yet, it is out there. Today they are beginning the update process for the flagships predecessor, the LG G2. The update officially comes in with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and weighs in at 725MB’s Making it one of the smaller Lollipop updates I have personally seen so far.


You will get all the awesomeness that is Lollipop like the lock screen notifications, bolder colors and fluid animations. It will also remove the browser bar and Famigo along with the AT&T Code Scanner and Beats Music. Current stock LG G2 owners will need to make sure they have well over 50% battery life, a solid Wi-Fi connection and some time to kill for the file to download and the update to complete. To check for it you will want to head to All Settings > General > About phone > Software update > Update now.
