Yesterday, LG Electronics Inc. confirmed that it would begin updating G3 handsets with the new Android 5.0 Lollipop mobile operating. Users in Poland will be the first to download the new mobile operating system. Users in other markets should anticipate the Android 5.0 update in coming weeks with the smartphone manufacturer saying it will soon announce a release schedule for other mobile devices. We’re yet to see the global rollout of updates for the Nexus devices, or those of Motorola, which were among the fastest to update to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Last week, LG had introduced two new devices to their mid-range device line-up, both of which look like great budget options. The two devices were the LG L Prime and the LG G2 Lite. Both the smartphones were listed on the company’s official website in Brazil. LG had unveiled the L Fino and L Bello in the L series in the month of August earlier this year, and these smart phones started rolling out globally in September. These smart phones were on sale in India via Flipkart earlier last month.
