LG G Pad 8.3’s Google Play Edition now receives Lollipop treat

Following its rollout for Nexus and a few Google Play Edition devices, the stock Android 5.0 Lollipop update has reached the GPE of the LG G Pad 8.3 now. Google and LG have taken their sweet time in releasing this build for the tablet as it’s quite unusual for a download to take such a long time in reaching a GPE device.

Nonetheless, as Android Police is pointing out, owners of the LG G Pad 8.3 are receiving their 5.0 Lollipop updates right now, so they better get on with downloading them. If you are in the possession of the slate and have still not received it, don’t be surprised as these rollouts do take time to reach everywhere around the world.
