The LG G Pro is a couple of years old, the Korean company's then flagship phablet has even been replaced by the G Pro 2 and the line is set to be discontinued in 2015. However, LG is still supporting its aging device it seems as the company has begun rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the G Pro. Although, it is worth noting that at the moment the upgrade is exclusive to South Korea, but will almost certainly move to other regions in the coming weeks.Considering this was an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device at launch, it is nice to see LG still backing up the handset, two Android generations later. The Optimus G Pro has aged pretty well, it has a 1080p 5.5-inch screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a 3140mAh battery. It is a prefect mid-range handset even today, and with Lollipop it will be an even more compelling option considering it is currently retailing on Amazon for around $300.
