LG G3 Starts Receiving Android 5.1.1 on Verizon models
Up until now, there has been no information regarding the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the LG G3. In fact, the speculation was that the G3 won’t receive the last Lollipop update and go straight to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
However, we have great news for the LG G3 owners who were worried about how long they would have to wait for the next OS update: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update has started rolling out for the former flagship of the South Korean phone maker.
The 5.1.1 update affects the Verizon branded LG G3 and brings a new interface, as well as various security patches including the one for the Stagefright vulnerability. In addition, it also enhances Bluetooth performance when G3 is connected to multiple devices.
The update weighs 353 MB and leads to to software version VS98535A and build number LMY47V.
The update is released over-the-air (OTA), so it might not hit your phone for a few days. You can try to manually update your LG G3 by going to Settings > System updates > Check for new system update. But prior to updating your device, make sure to have a full battery and a stable Wi-Fi connection.
There are no details regarding the release of this update in other markets, although at this point it may probably take a few weeks before the rollout is extended to other countries.
