According to LG, the flagship smartphone G3 is going to get the latest Android OS within the next two month. The G2 is also going to get an update.
The company did not make any comments in regards to updates coming to other devices such as the G3 Stylus, G2, L Bello and L Fino but we expect dates for these to come in the next few weeks as well.
Here are some highlights of the new OS:
- You are always going to be connected with Android L.
“We want to know where you are, and we want to be voice enabled. It shouldn’t matter which device you are using, we should pick up where you left off.” Google said back in June when they first showcased Android L.
Calls, text messaging, notifications etc can all show up on your PC, your search history accounts and apps – everything is synchronized between all your devices.
- Improved battery life
Google is going to give developers access to the battery use. A battery saver mode is also going to be integrated which can increase the battery life by up to 90 minutes per day.
- A new design
The new OS is going to have the same look and feel across all platforms.
The look and feel is clean, yet colorful, flat but also dimensional.
One of the biggest improvements that consumers are going to notice are the notifications which are much more user friendly in this version, can be viewed on the lockscreen and are customizable beyond that.
