LG Electronics says it is the first global smartphone manufacturer to offer the Lollipop upgrade in 2014.

This latest Android OS delivers a host of improvements including added depth, shadows and animations. Notifications are improved with a new layout and colour scheme and will be available on the new lock screen. A new security feature to strengthen the connectivity between devices will include enabling users to unlock their smartphone when it is physically near a pre-registered Bluetooth device such as the LG G Watch or G Watch R. 

“LG is absolutely committed to giving our customers the best mobile experiences available and bringing Android Lollipop to G3 owners as soon as possible is a top priority,” said Dr Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new features and improvements in Android 5.0 will bring a whole new user experience to the G3 and make it even better than it already is.”

Additional details related to LG devices, 
including an upgrade schedule for other LG mobile devices, will be announced in the near future as the Lollipop upgrade becomes available in local markets.
