Only in Korea for now, but that’s how these things go.
Viewed by many as a second-tier device manufacturer until a couple of years back, Samsung’s lesser domestic rival has really stepped up its game lately. LG’s flagships now constantly look and perform better than top-tier Galaxy S and Notes, plus they seem to get swifter software upgrades.
The G3 even managed to steal the thunder of Google’s Nexus family a few months ago, when it scored Lollipop, and the G2 quickly followed suit. Of course, the sweet, sweet 5.0 packages haven’t exactly spread worldwide yet, as LG depends on carriers too for optimization and, well, bloat-ization.
Incredibly enough, in their homeland, they’ve just reached a tally of three handhelds brought up to date. Yes, the G Pro 2 can also be bumped up to Android 5.0 Lollipop starting today, no matter the network you’re on. The hefty, Material Designed ports are available for download here, and there are separate links for SKT, KT and U+ versions.
Be careful to pull the right one, and anyone not rocking a Korean G Pro 2, model numbers F350S, F350K or F350L, don’t even think if. It’ll end badly, or at best, you’ll simply be wasting your time. Just wait your turn, and trust us, your patience will be rewarded.
Hopefully, LG isn’t cutting corners in its Lollipop stabilization process to carry out these amazing feats and turnarounds. After all, they must have a lot on their plates, what with the G4 unveil and G Flex 2 commercial launch approaching.
