Android 6.0 M is currently rolling to massive numbers of Android devices and LG’s list of smartphones is no exception.
The South Korean company has been busy in the smartphone market lately, coming in with quite a number of amazing handsets in a bid to take a share of the highly competitive Android smartphone market; a market that is highly dominated by Samsung and the likes of Huawei.
LG G5 was recently made official following its February announcement. With this in mind, it is not surprising that the phone comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The phone’s predecessor, the LG G4, has also received the new Android 6.0 M update already. The update began in the home country of South Korea and, later on, found its way to the U.S. and other regions. Those using the G4 on AT&T and Verizon have already received the Marshmallow update and so are those using the 2015 flagship on T-Mobile, Sprint as well as U.S. Cellular.
If you haven’t received the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow on your LG G4, head to the phone’s Settings and find the System Update option.
LG G3 Marshmallow updates rolling out on Verizon
Verizon users of LG G3 can already download and install the latest Marshmallow OS on their devices. This update came to the U.S. after the company had begun rolling out the same update to the LG G3’s international and unlocked variants. All users of the device can check for an OTA update or manually check for the update via the Settings.
Even though Verizon users have already received the Marshmallow update on LG G3, those using T-Mobile can expect it a little later as the process is still in the manufacturer development stage. After this, it will enter the T-Mobile testing stage before it is finally available for download. It is now known when exactly this will be, and so is the case with Sprint, AT&T as well as U.S. Cellular.
Verizon seems to be doing everything possible to see that most of its users have received the new Marshmallow OS. This has gone to the extent of getting a Marshmallow-based custom ROM to run on the LG G2. While LG has not mentioned a thing whether this device will be receiving the Marshmallow update, it seems the way out is using custom ROM, which should still give a stable performance.
LG V10 Marshmallow update is also not ready for U.S. carriers. T-Mobile, for instance, still has the device’s software update in manufacturer development stage. However, there are reports that the update is already underway in South Korea and Turkey.
Those using the LG G Stylo have also received the Marshmallow update.
