LG said recently that its G3 flagship would be getting the bump to Android 5.0 Lollipop sometime this month, making it among the first third party smartphones to get the update. The good news is that is seems the roll out of Google's latest and greatest will start for the G3 this week, with the South Korean variant reported to be getting the update by Friday.

The three big Korean carriers (LG U+, Korea Telecom, and SKT) are all pushing out the update this week, although they will probably be staged roll outs. If you live in South Korea you will also be able to grab the update directly from LG as the company will make the download available on its website.

The device has already been update to Android 5.0 in Poland and now that it is making its way to LG's home country we assume a wider roll out will follow next week and in December. The US and European variants will probably land Lollipop in the coming weeks, but as always it will depend on the various carriers and networks in those regions. Hopefully LG does like it did in Korea and makes the update available online.

Android 5.0 is the latest addition of Google's mobile platform and is considered the most important overhaul to the software so far. It comes with a new design, a myriad of new features, and enhanced security protocols.
