Now that Google has unveiled Android N at the big Google I/O conference, Android users from around the world are wondering when they can get their latest version of the operating system.  Unfortunately, there are still some of the newer Android phones that still are not running with Android M (also known as version 6.0 or Lollipop), including those from LG.  This is that latest news on Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G5, G4, G3, G2, G Stylo, and V10 on Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and AT&T, not to mention the release date of Android N.

Now that Google has unveiled Android N at the big Google I/O conference, Android users from around the world are wondering when they can get their latest version of the operating system.  Unfortunately, there are still some of the newer Android phones that still are not running with Android M (also known as version 6.0 or Lollipop), including those from LG.  This is that latest news on Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G5, G4, G3, G2, G Stylo, and V10 on Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and AT&T, not to mention the release date of Android N. 

According to Trusted Reviews, LG was the quickest off the mark to get it, with the exception of Google Nexus devices.  LG did go out of their way to make certain that their users were one of the first to get Marshmallow, and the LG G3, the flagship phone from two years ago, received Android M on November 10 of last year, provided you are in Poland.

The newest flagship phone, the LG G5, was announced at Mobile World Congress last February, and it comes with Android 6.0 right out of the packaging.  As for the flagship from one year ago, the LG G4, it is also pretty much covered from all carriers including T-Mobile, US Cellular, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.  Some carriers, like Sprint, even had Android M to their subscribers before the year ended. 

There really haven't been many changes as far as Android upgrades are concerned to the LG G3.  The flagship phone from two years ago has its upgrade available if you are a subscriber from Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile, but mum is the word on the other two carriers. 

If you have an LG G3 with US Cellular or Sprint, you might want to check to open the "Settings" menu and "System Update" to see if the upgrade is available Over the Air (OTA).  If so, then hopefully, you have the memory you will need to provide for it. 

That goes for LG users that have a non-flagship device such as the G Flex 2 or LG G4C.  According to Tech Radar, there is a word that LG is rolling out the upgrade on the LG V10 for T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T, so that is progress.

So it looks like things are progressing very well for LG, and it shouldn't take long before all of the newer devices have Android M.  As for Android N, that is going to take longer, as Pocket-Lint reports that LG G5 users will see an Android N update within a couple of months of the final build release, possibly before the end of 2016.  It is not known if Android N will come to the older phones like the LG G4 and probably not the LG G3, but that remains to be seen.
