Now that Android Version 6.0, also known as Marshmallow or Android M has been released for about two months now, it really is a matter of time before it rolls out to other newer Android devices.  Google always gives it to its own Nexus first, but then it rolls out to other companies, such as Samsung, HTC, as well as LG.  LG has been pretty dedicated about trying to get Android 6.0 to their users as soon as possible, and this is what is known about the Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G4, G3, and possibly G2 on carriers like Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T.

Now that Android Version 6.0, also known as Marshmallow or Android M has been released for about two months now, it really is a matter of time before it rolls out to other newer Android devices.  Google always gives it to its own Nexus first, but then it rolls out to other companies, such as Samsung, HTC, as well as LG.  LG has been pretty dedicated about trying to get Android 6.0 to their users as soon as possible, and this is what is known about the Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G4, G3, and possibly G2 on carriers like Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T. 

We have previously reported in an article about the soon-to-be-released LG G5 that Android M is coming for the LG G4 and LG G3 soon.  There isn't really much word in the past week about when "soon" will be.  However, out of all the Android smartphone manufacturers that include Samsung, Sony, HTC, and others, LG is probably the one company that wants to get the update to its customers the soonest.  That is, if Google doesn't have the rights to put it out first. 

Right after the rollout, LG promised that their phones would have Android 6.0 first (ignoring the fact that the Nexus 5X and 6P exist).  Then began their rollout that slowly but surely beginning to come to countries in Europe like Poland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Croatia, and Turkey, according to Tech Radar

There is no word when it will be coming to the United States.  Of course, the LG G4 will probably be the first to get it, and it is expected to arrive sometime in January or February 2016, according to Pocket-Lint.  Much of it will also depend on the carrier, such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or US Cellular. 

Know Your Mobile reports that the upgrade for the G3 will be arriving soon, as the open source code for the LG G3 Marshmallow update has been published online.  Perhaps it will roll out in Europe before coming to the United States. It is probable that the LG G Flex 2, the LG G4c and other recent LG phones including the LG G2 will be receiving their 6.0 shift. 

Also, once the rollout happens, it is a matter of it going through the carrier, which can cause even more delays.  There is a report saying that Sprint has started bringing the Marshmallow update to the LG G4, according to GSMArena.  This is an excellent sign that the other networks will follow.  Please leave a comment if it has come to your LG phone, and to check your Settings if the Over the Air (OTA) update is ready.
