It was up in the air whether or not the LG G2 would be getting the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, but LG has now taken to Facebook to confirm that the device will be at some point getting the update. The company also made note of the G3, which will supposedly be getting the update faster than most. Asus, yet another manufacturer of Android phones, has also announced some of the devices that it is currently planning to grace with Lollipop, with the ZenFone and PadFoneS making the list.

The LG G3 will be one of the first of the flagship Android phones to get Lollipop, possibly even making a run to beat HTC’s famous 90-day promise. While Nexus devices will surely be getting the Android 5.0 experience first, LG has promised that its G3 smartphone will see Lollipop at some point before the end of the year. The older G2 “will follow,” according to the company’s German Facebook page, meaning that device will probably get Lollipop at some point in early 2015.

Hello everyone, we want to inform you hereby, that it upgrade to Android 5.0 2014 will be published lollipop for the LG G3 in the fourth quarter. The upgrade package for the LG G2 will follow. LG Sascha

Asus has taken to its own discussion forums to announce its plans for Lollipop, but it looks like most of the devices they’re prepping for Lollipop won’t get the update until at least April 2015. On the list is the ZenFones 4, 5, and 6 as well as the PadFoneS. Lastly, the PadFone Infinity (A86) will be getting the update closer to mid-2015 in June.
