LG G Pro 2 starts getting Lollipop 5.0.1 over-the-air in Europe

LG G Pro 2 starts getting Lollipop 5.0.1 over-the-air in Europe
The Android 5.0 Lollipop started seeding for LG G Pro 2 users in South Korea some 10 days ago, and based on a host of screenshots sent in by one of our readers, it's looking like LG isn't wasting any time pushing the update to other parts of the globe – in this case Hungary, Europe.

Weighing in at about 640MB, the new 5.0.1 Lollipop firmware brings a much-needed UI refresh to the G Pro 2, which was starting to look a bit stale and outdated with LG's now aged proprietary skin based on Android 4.4 KitKat. Among the changes are a re-designed notifications bar, refreshed icons, new software navigation keys, an overhauled recent apps menu, and many more. If you've seen the LG G3 with Lollipop on it, then you'll know exactly what to expect.

It is unclear at this point when LG G Pro 2 owners in other countries (and regions) will get the prompt to update, as the over-the-air process is broken down into phases. LG started out with South Korea, fixed any outstanding bugs that it didn't catch internally, and then moved on to other areas. Unless a widespread, critical issue rears its ugly head, it's likely that the firmware is in for a smooth sail, and you won't have to wait much longer to get yours. Unfortunately, however, if you own a carrier-branded G Pro 2 unit, then you might have to sit tight, for your network provider first needs to certify the software for work on its infrastructure.

Thanks for the tip, John!
