The LG G2 is over two years old, being released in August 2013 with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, but in the meantime, it was upgraded to 5.0.2 Lollipop. Recently, the device was spotted in a Geekbench test by Napidroid, and apparently, it ran on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but LG hasn’t confirmed the availability of this firmware for this older model, which means that the entry might have been faked.
It would be great for the LG G2 owners to be able to update their devices to the latest Marshmallow version, because this update is already rolling out to the LG G4 in Europe and the US. The software is 1.55GB large and it finally arrives after the soak tests have been finished in Korea and Poland.
In the absence of an official announcement from LG, we can only make assumptions, but it’s hard to ignore the benchmark tests that LG G2 on Verizon has gone through, and which gave good results. It wouldn’t be a big surprise if the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will be rolled out to this device. Currently, the only way to install this Android software on the LG G2 is by using a custom ROM, and CM 13 ROM is the best recommendation.
The specs of the LG G2 include: a 5.2-inch True HD-IPS + LCD screen with a Full HD resolution which gives a pixel density of 424ppi, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset that houses a quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 processor, an Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM and it’s available in two variants of internal memories with capacities of 16GB and 32GB, which can’t be expanded. On the rear side has a 13 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.4 and features such as autofocus, OIS, LED flash, 1/3″ sensor size, 1.12 µm pixel size, HDR etc., while the selfie camera has a resolution of 2.1MP. The phone is powered by a 3000mAh battery.
