Since it has been a month since Google had their huge announcement of their Nexus phones, the next logical and traditional step for the company is to rollout the latest version of Android, Android M (also known as version 6.0 or Marshmallow), on other Android smartphone brands such as those at Samsung, HTC, Sony, and LG. This is what is presently known about the Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow Release Date for LG G4, G Flex 2, and G3 on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
Last week, we reported that there were some problems with LG getting its presence in Poland. According to Phone Arena, it looks like those problems were ironed out in Europe as South Korean LG G4 owners are beginning to receive their Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.
If that is true, that the LG G4 is well on its way to receiving the Android Marshmallow update in the United States. After all, if it is accepted and tested well over in Asia, it is only a matter of time before it comes to North America. Historically, LG has kept its customers waiting for updates, so it shouldn't be any surprise if the Marshmallow update doesn't arrive until January or February of 2016, according to Pocket-Lint.
It would be good if it arrived before the holidays, but since LG hasn't come and made any deadline or promises, Android rollouts tend to arrive later and not sooner. There is a report that LG will officially confirm and publish an upgrade schedule soon, but there doesn't seem to be any word on that front as yet.
So if the LG G4 got it, does this mean that other LG phones will get it as well? Well, the LG G Flex 2 was released this year, which is enough to justify it having the latest release of Android. It is probably a safe bet that the LG G3 will also receive the upgrade, but it didn't get Android 5.1, so maybe it will skip to 6.0? We will see. That goes for the G2 as well.
If you want this Android Version 6.0 on your LG G4 smartphone now, there is a way. The International Business Times of India has a step-by-step procedure for that, and it is recommended that you have some technical know-how before you attempt this.
If you don't have the technical know-how and just want to wait for the OTA (over the air) update, check your LG phone's Settings under System Update, and see if there is anything new available. The OTA rollout for Marshmallow may also depend on your carrier, so if you are with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile, you might have to wait longer than others.
