At the beginning of the year, Xiaomi has revealed the list of smartphones that will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and it included the Mi4, Mi4i, Mi4c, Note 2 and Prime, Redmi 2 and Prime, Mi Note Pro and Mi Note. Now, it seems that Xiaomi has changed its mind about the Mi 4 flagship, which will be updated directly to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and there’s a screenshot proving that a user is already running this version on his phone. And we have good news for the LG G3 owners who bought this device from Verizon, as the carrier is rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to them.
The Xiaomi Mi 4 will receive the build number MMB29M of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which has around 100MB in size. The device was released in July 2014 with Android 4.4.3 KitKat out of the box, and since then, it never received any updates. However, its MIUI was updated to version 7 in October 2015 and this month, it was updated to version 7.1.
Some owners of the LG G3 flagship (which was also released in 201) were surprised when they’ve been informed that Verizon has delivered the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to their devices, considering this is one of the US carriers that are usually moving very slowly when it comes to OS updates. In Europe, the first privileged LG G3 owners who received the update in December live in Poland, and soon, more mobile operators from other European countries did the same for their customers.
Surprisingly, the US carrier Verizon made this move, and, almost a week ago, a Reddit user known as Jrdnram_98 has posted on the social networking website a screenshot of his device running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Later that day, more users have confirmed that they’ve received the OTA update.
Initially, the LG G3 ran on Android v4.4.2 (KitKat) and when the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop was released, Verizon made considerable efforts to please its clients and delivered the update in short time. Then, in October, the LG G3 model was updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
