Previous reports had indicated that LG G3 Marshmallow update will start showing up beginning March 14. However, it seems Canadian carrier Telus has other things in mind as far as this device is concerned.
The new Android 6.0 Marshmallow is currently rolling out for quite a number of devices running on this carrier. But the company has unveiled a new Marshmallow schedule that has omitted the LG G3 from the list of devices getting the upgrade in the coming few days.
This is not the best news for the many LG G3 owners who were anticipating the release of the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS to their devices. To make the matters worse, Telus has no specific date as to when the much-anticipated LG G3 Marshmallow update will be coming out. Further, there is no word as to why the company decided to remove the G3 from the list of devices meant to receive this update as scheduled. The good side of the story is that the company has promised the update will be coming, so just be patient and keep checking for the update through your phone’s settings.
Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow update starting March 16
While those on the LG G3 wait for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, Telus will be releasing the same update to those using last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 starting tomorrow. This is great news for those using these two phablets as they’ll finally be able to test the great features and performance improvements that Marshmallow brings to the table.
Next up in line is Motorola Moto X Play, which will receive the Marshmallow update beginning next Monday, March 21.
If you are using a Galaxy S6 Edge, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be coming your way on March 30, two weeks after showing up on the S6 Edge+. One reason behind this is the fact that the Note 5 and S6 Edge+ are a little newer than the S6 Edge and S6, hence the delay in the update reaching the latter group. It is because of the same reason that the Galaxy S6 Marshmallow update will hit Telus devices starting April 13.
One thing to keep in mind is that, as we have seen with the LG G3 Marshmallow update, dates are subject to change. In most cases the carriers take the blame, but usually, the manufacturer has a hand in this delay.
