Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3 to get Android 5.0 Lollipop this year itself

Android 5.0 Lollipop will reportedly arrive to previous Nexus devices early November and if you own a Samsung Galaxy S5 or LG G3, you won’t have to wait much longer. According to the latest reports, both handsets will be getting the latest mobile OS Google has to offer by the end of this year.

TechTastic has learned from an LG representative covering the Netherlands and Belgium that the G3 flagship will be getting the update before 2014 comes to an end. However, there are no concrete details about the rollout. LG will probably make an official announcement on the same soon, if the information provided is true.

Previous reports suggested that the device would get the update in late November or early December, but SamMobile has now learned from its sources that the new firmware will arrive in the latter month and the rollout could continue for several weeks depending on location.
