Though the LG G2 came out in 2013, it seems to continue to receive the latest Android OS updates. Currently the G2 is using Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, which it received back in April of this year. According to the German site Android Pit and a source coming from LG’s Software Department, LG is getting ready to release their LG UX 4.0 skin of Android 5.1.1 to the 2013 device.
At the moment, there is no set changelog for what is going to be different, if there is any difference at all, but we can expect the same (maybe not all) features the G4 already has. When and if the U.S. version of the G2 will be receiving Android 5.1.1 will be up to the carriers. We can only hope right?
The photo that Android Pit received shows the build number as LMY48B and of course Android 5.1.1, but the source states the software update is not set to start sending OTAs to devices until a couple months from now. No specific date was revealed for September, but we can keep guessing until it’s officially announced. The update will also push out new navigation buttons too that are the same that the LG G3 already has.
Reports out and about claim that the LG G3 and the LG G Flex 2 will be skipping Android 5.1.1 and going straight to Android M. Though these claims may be true, Sprint’s LG G Flex 2 is already running Android 5.1.1 thanks to the update last month. This may not be including Sprint’s version, but this device does already have the latest Android OS installed.
If you still have your LG G2 lying around somewhere, are you going to update it to Android 5.1.1? Those who have the G3 or the G Flex 2, maybe even both, do you prefer getting Android 5.1.1 or waiting for Android M?
