LG continues to roll out the update for its most popular handset of 2014, the LG G3.

The popular device that was first to feature the 1440 x 2560 screen resolution is on track to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade on global level. After LG rolled out the update for users in Poland last week, this week, the company released the update for Korean users.

Right on Schedule

The update comes just in time for the schedule that was leaked at the beginning of November on a Polish website. The update brings a series of new features and customization options, but most importantly, it greatly increases the performances of the popular handset.

How to Get the Update?

There are two ways LG G3 users can get their Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The first way is through over the air download, available for all the mobile operators in Korea. The second option requires downloading the update from the website of LG.

When Will the Update Be Globally Available?

At the moment, there is no clear timetable when the update will be available for all users of the LG G3 smartphone. The company ships the smartphone to more than 100 countries and the update is going slow, country by country. However, some rumors suggest that by the end of the year, more than 60% of LG G3 users should run their handset on the Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Which Phone Will Follow?

LG has also announced that aside from the LG G3, other handsets should get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The next phone scheduled for the update is the LG G2.

What Does Lollipop Bring?

The new Android 5.0 Lollipop update brings a series of new features. However, the most important of them all is the drastic change of the user interface. Lollipop brings new design language, which is the material design. The material design allows even more customization options than before, and it will be present in all Google’s online products.
