I hope it's true. Our beloved G2 deserves this update :cool:



In the article they said the information directly came from an employee working at LG Software Development

Generally firstly korean versions get update than int. versions get the updates. It looks like fake but I hope we get the update.

Btw if this update really exist the version number shouldn't be v40 should be v3X(except v30, exmple v35a for 5.1.1 update. if we get android m update it should be v40X)

Your aproach make sense but on the article they stated information came from Korea. From now we have to wait and see :confused:

It's normal that the baseband is the same as 5.0.2?
They both based on LP maybe possible but I am not sure

Mmm i don't think that LG would update an old phone like G2

Yes it's an old phone but we shouldn't miss the point that it's still a very powerful phone and has a good hardware.

In screenshots.it looks like they would gonna update our G2 to 5.1.1 with Full LG g4 UI as well as our 5.0.2 with g3 UI.i am sure LG would gonna provide us both LP and android M updates besides our chipset is enough powerful to handle android M easily. :)

I'll believe it when I see it. My Canadian g2 is still stuck on 4.4.2. I have to pick between good battery life and camera, or up to date, nice looking software on my nexus 4.

i hope not
if we get 5.1.1 we will not receive Android m
What makes you say that? First of all the update to 5.1.1 isnt a drastic overhaul and is needed to fix bugs that are currently present in 5.0. An android M update would require more work than the 5.1.1 update.
The only reasons we probably won't get android m are:
1. Too much work to update to M because of drastic changes
2. They could have decided to just leave the LG g2 with lollipop, which is fair given the 2 year period since release. Most phones don't get updates after a 2 year period. Except for nexus.

They should rather skip Android Lollipop 5.1.x and go straight to Android M IMHO.

Doing a 5.1.x release for the LG G2 is a waste of time when Android M is already around the corner.

At the time they will release a 5.1.x update, it is probably going to be outdated already because Android M will already be available...

So, LG, if you are reading this, please update the LG G2 directly to Android M instead. That woud be much better.

Regards

It looks as if if our Canadian variant is abandoned permanently on 4.4.2 with no plans to update it, so I doubt any of them will get m

I dont think that the canadian variant is only the fault of LG. The telecom providers don't even know when their own devices are getting updated and cant provide valid information so we should blame both or none.
Btw if this is true then it will be the v40 update. I didn't knew any other LG device yet which got updated higher then v30(2 android version upgrades) ofcourse excluding nexus series.
