No Android 5.1.1 update for LG G4 – could jump to Android M

Waiting for the Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) update for your LG G4? If so, we’ve got bad news for you. Sources have revealed that the Korean smartphone maker has no plans of updating their new flagship to the most current version of Android.


Greek-speaking TechValue spotted O2 UK and LG Hellas (LG’s Greek arm) responding to customers, letting them know that LG has no future plans of updating the LG G4 to Android 5.1.1.

According to TechValue’s sources, however, that LG G4 owners need not worry. The sources claim that instead of getting Android 5.1.1, the flagship will be updated directly to Android M, which is the next version of Android.

It is yet to be determined when Android M will be available for the LG G4.
