LG starts rolling out Android Lollipop updates for its G Pad tablets
LG today announced that it's updating its G Pad tablets to Android 5.0 Lollipop, first in South Korea, and then (hopefully soon) in other markets. All of LG's recent slates are included here: G Pad 8.3, G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and G Pad 10.1.

It's worth mentioning that the G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition (which is no longer available to buy) was updated to Lollipop several months ago.

While the G Pad 8.3 has been around since late 2013, the other three LG tablets are newer, being released in 2014. All are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, have 1 GB of RAM, and 800 x 1280 pixels displays of different sizes (7 inches, 8 inches, and 10.1 inches). As you can see, these are by no means high-end devices.

We assume that LG will bring Lollipop not just to the unlocked variants of its G Pads, but also to the LTE models that are available in the US via various carriers (like Verizon and AT&T).

LG was quick enough to shut up all the Pad 8.3 owners who were nagging about LG being slow to update their tablets. A good step in the right direction for LG. They have been working hard on giving their costumers what they want.

the 8.3 was the best tablet around 2 years ago, I was gutted when they didn't refresh it in 2014. The tab s seems to be the best one available now just don't like the bloatware.

The LG G pad F for sprint comes with 5.0.1 out the box. Good to hear the others are following up on the update.

The VK810.4G Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 uses the SnapDragon 600 running at 1.5 GHz, not the 400. I think some or all of the other variants of the 8.3 have it running at 1.7 GHz. Just FYI. :) Thanks for the information.
