LG G3 lollipop update

Slowly but surely smartphone manufacturers are revealing their Android Lollipop update plans. Asus and LG are the two latest companies to stick their hands up and be counted, with the PadFone S, ZenFone, G2, and G3 all making the cut.

After weeks of complete silence, a post on LG’s official German Facebook page reveals that the company will actually be one of the first to have Lollipop ready for its latest flagship. LG is promising to have the update for the LG G3 out before the end of the year. That might be even faster than HTC’s 90 day promise. However, regional and carrier update timeframes could vary. An update for the LG G2 is scheduled to follow shortly afterwards, although a specific timeframe hasn’t been given.

Asus has also recently announced its update plans through its own ZenTalk forum. The ZenFone 4, 5, and 6 are all set to receive Lollipop in April 2015, as is the PadFone S.  The company’s new PadFone Infinity will also receive the Lollipop treatment come June next year. This is a little slower than some of the big companies that are planning to release updates, but the confirmation is much appreciated.
