The LG G3 smartphone powerhouse is ready to get the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop as soon as this week, the company officially announced.

Android 5.0 Lollipop has been in the spotlight ever since its official debut, and several OEMs have publicly announced their plans to upgrade their devices to the latest operating system (OS). While most will start rolling out the update next year, LG has better news for its fans: the flagship LG G3 will start receiving the update in just a few days, becoming the first LG device to get the new Android flavor.

LG will start rolling out the new Android 5.0 Lollipop to its G3 smartphone his coming week, starting with Poland, but other key markets will follow shortly afterward.

"LG Electronics (LG) this week will begin rolling out the highly anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade for G3 smartphones starting in Poland this week, to be followed by other key markets in the near future," the company touts in a new press release on Sunday, Nov. 9. "LG, the first global smartphone manufacturer to offer the Lollipop upgrade in 2014, will subsequently announce an upgrade schedule for other LG mobile devices."

"LG is absolutely committed to giving our customers the best mobile experiences available and bringing Android Lollipop to G3 owners as soon as possible is a top priority," adds Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "The new features and improvements in Android 5.0 will bring a whole new user experience to the G3 and make it even better than it already is."

In other words, the company has not offered any additional details at this point regarding when other markets will start receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the LG G3, but it will provide a more detailed upgrade schedule in the future. For now, LG G3 owners in Poland should start seeing the latest update in the coming days.

The new Android 5.0 Lollipop will bring a slew of neat improvements and new features to the platform, marking notable upgrades over the previous version of the OS. Improved notifications, ART system to improve performance, and Google's new Material Design are just a few highlights, but the new OS has plenty more to bring to the table.
