A couple of days ago, T-Mobile launched a brand new page for checking the progress on Android software updates. With most phones in the carrier’s lineup still waiting for Android 5.0 Lollipop, it was a smart move to have one place to go to check the process status. When it went live only nine handsets populated the list. Now, two more have been added.
LG’s impressive G2 and G3 are now both on the list, and that means one thing: Android 5.0 Lollipop is on its way. The software is still in the first stages of development. But at least it’s on its way.
On T-Mobile’s Software Updates page, software updates are organized in three stages: Manufacturer Development, T-Mobile Testing and Completed. In order for the latest version of Android to make its way to customers’ handsets, the software needs to be submitted to T-Mobile, who test it and make sure everything’s working.
I don’t know exactly what timeframe we’re looking at with the update, it could be weeks. But for those of you with the devices, at least you know now that the software update is coming for both the current generation LG flagship, and the previous one.
