LG updates the Optimus G Pro to Android 5.0 Lollipop (in Korea)

Introduced two years ago, the LG Optimus G Pro is - surprisingly or not - being updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update is now officially available in South Korea, LG's home country, so we hope that Optimus G Pro owners in other parts of the world will also get the new OS at some point.
At launch, the Optimus G Pro ran Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This is LG's last flagship handset to use the "Optimus" brand, while also being the company's first phablet to sport a 1080 x 1920 pixels display (measuring 5.5 inches).
In case you're interested, you can still buy an LG Optimus G Pro. In the US, you can find it unlocked at Amazon for around $300. That's a very good price considering all the features that the Optimus G Pro is offering, including a 13 MP rear camera, a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3140 mAh battery.
Other LG handsets that have already received official Android 5.0 Lollipop updates (though not in all markets) are the G3, the G2, and the G Pro 2.

They should also update the Optimus G to Lollipop, it has Snapdragon S4 Pro which is the same chipset in the Nexus 4 and Xperia Z. But anyways, good job LG!

I think they completely forgot Optimus G after updating it to KitKat. It didn't even get small bugfix updates (KitKat on OG has some bugs)
