Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update now comes out to a new band of top smartphone brands, including LG G2, Moto X 2014, and Nexus devices.

A leaked screenshot shows LG G2 smartphone with build number LRX21Y is running on Google's latest operating system. Reports suggest that G2 owners might get a new design and interface with that of G3's latest Lollipop package.

Custom Today warned, however, to take the good news with a grain of salt. The leak seems to be coming from G2 model F320L, which reported to be a South Korean LTE-A version of the device. Possibility is it could not be available in the US for now. Nevertheless, the leaks shall give LG G2 owners reasons not to fret and set high hopes for the latest update.

Android 5.0.1 is also reported to come out on G3 phones sooner. Android 5.0 Lollipop has been made available to LG's flagship smartphone G3 for Sprint and AT&T last month, while for Verizon and T-Mobile subscribers have to wait for their mobile carriers to give the go signal.

Meanwhile, Motorola has announced Android 5.0.1 Lollipop has been made available for its flagship smartphone Moto X 2014 under US Cellular. The customers of the mobile carrier were being directed to the update, which makes a user-friendly experience compared to the previous models.

The Taiwanese tech giant HTC recently revealed that Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update will hit Nexus devices by March. These include Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are expected to get the update earlier than the revealed information.

HTC's Vice President for Production Management Mo Versi replied to an HTC One (M7) GPE (Google Play Edition) user via microblogging site Twitter who inquired about button lights bug fix.

Mo Versi hinted in his response that Google is brewing a maintenance release (MR) update for Android coming next month. The tweet read: "It'll be tied to Google's next MR, which is in March."

In HTC's website, Mo Versi said in an update news for Lollipop roll out: "We've been working hard in the labs with Google and our carrier partners ever since the code release and are making great progress so far." However, the update might not give too many new features but HTC is set on fixing bugs and general improvement in performance.

Nevertheless, if Android 5.0 Lollipop updates promises Google's Material Design UI, and improved notification settings, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop shall be better than that. To manually update devices, be sure to connect handset over Wi-Fi and sufficiently charged up. Go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Check Now. Follow onscreen instructions after manually checking update.
