After the news that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be coming to LG G series phones, many users of the LG G3 are eagerly waiting for the operating system (OS) to be installed on their devices. The question is “When?”
Now that this Android operating system, also known as Android M, has been officially rolled out for about 4 months, many people believe that it is high time for it receive upgrades to be compatible with the newest of Android devices. LG has been observed making some strides to get the Marshmallow to users of new LG smartphones, though they only confirmed release dates for just a few; unfortunately G3 is not one of them. Nevertheless, the company has been doing a good job in trying to get the OS into the hands of its users or, at least, as good as it can, which means that we can expect the update to come really soon for this specific model of LG phone.
Since LG has released Marshmallow, the company has been pushing to get it in some countries, with it being supported in some parts of the Americas, Europe and Asia. But as far as when it will become available in the US and the UK still remains unsure. As of yet, it has been reported by Pocket Lint that its release date in these two countries is supposed to be sometime this month, at least we have seen it come to the newest LG Android device—the G4. In fact, the development was confirmed to have already started on February 4 for T-Mobile users. And as Tech Radar stated on their report, “The update is also now rolling out to Sprint in the US, but there’s no official word on which devices will get the upgrade, or when.”
Well, when it comes to Android rollouts, this is quite typical, where one subscriber would often receive the update before the others. In fact, there are other LG headsets that are set to receive the upgrade, including the G3 and other more recent LG Android phones.
Speaking of these recent phones from LG, the company has planned to replace its flagship phone with the new G5. According to the International Business Times, the company has already sent off invitations for the official event of unveiling, which is set to take place on the 21st of this month, a day before the annual Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain starts.
With regards to the phone specs, all we know is that it should have a 5.5 or 5.6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1,440 x 2,560; should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and an Adreno 530 GPU; should have a 32 GB internal memory that can be expanded to 128 GB with a microSD card; should have a 16-Megapixel primary camera and an 8-Megapixel secondary camera; and should run on 3,000 mAh battery.
