If you happen to own the Verizon variant of the LG G3 you should keep an eye on the notifications panel. Verizon has announced that a new update is being rolled out to their LG G3. Don’t celebrate yet, it’s not Android 5.0 Lollipop. In fact, it’s not even Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
A new Android 4.4.2 update for LG G3 is being pushed to the owners who purchased the device from Verizon. Because the terminal was launched with Android 4.4.2 out of the box, it came pre-loaded with all the KitKat-specific goodies such as transparent status and nav bars, white status bar icons, immersive mode, color emoji support, new Location menu, or full screen album and movie art. The new LG G3 Android 4.4.2 comes to “increase device speed for user experience” and to “increase network connectivity.” It also adds a camera shortcut in the lock screen. I know, it’s not a major update, but you would most likely want it on your device.
As usual, the new LG G3 Android 4.4.2 update is being rolled out in phases, which means that some Verizon customers might not be able to download and install it right away. Once your device becomes eligible to receive the new firmware, you should be able to notice a system update message in the notifications bar. Tap on it, then follow the on-screen instructions. In case the system update notification failed to appear, then you would also want to perform a manual check under Settings System updates Check.
It’s also worth noting that the new software update has build number VS98511C and that it has a size of around 200 MB. We recommend you to download the update file using a stable WiFi network in order to avoid unwanted data charges.
