LG G2 - front

Official Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update set to be made available for LG G2

Despite the LG G2 having been released back in September 2013, it will reportedly receive an update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop – the very latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. This would signal impressive commitment from LG to older devices, and mean that owners of the LG G2 would have access to the most up-to-date features and security fixes.

In addition to the OS update, LG UX 4.0 will reportedly also be included alongside Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, giving LG G2 owners access to the South Korean company’s latest custom features.

The addition of LG UX 4.0 would mean that features found on the 2015 LG G4 flagship device would also be available on a smartphone that was first released almost two years ago.

The news has come from Android Pit, with an LG software development department employee having told the website about the update.

At the end of March 2015, the LG G2 received an update to Android 5.0.2, providing a fairly recent indication that the device is still being actively supported by the manufacturer.
