The U.S.’ five big-name cell phone carriers – AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular and T-Mobile – are readying themselves for the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The update will be applied to LG phones – G3, G4, G4 Stylo, V10 and G Flex 2.
When will the firmware make its introduction to these phones?
Verizon phone holders will be the first to attain the firmware. Subscribers with Sprint are set to get the upgrade after that, followed by AT&T, US Cellular and T-Mobile. There’s no guarantees that it’ll go off without a hitch because carriers can face any type of issue.
Verizon recently upgraded its G3 model, which is set for release by the other carriers. By month’s end, the global alternative for G3 is going to be upgraded soon, bypassing the 5.1 version.
Android Marshmallow is set to be released sometime in March for the LG phones, but no given date was provided. In February, the G4 Stylo attained the Android Lollipop update, and the device is set to receive the Marshmallow update when it comes out. While the LG G4 Pro has yet to be announced or even released, it’s anticipated to be installed with the Android Marshmallow firmware. Although G2 is three years old, the chances for it to have Marshmallow is high.
According to Pocket-Lint, LG is going to publish an upgrade schedule, which allows other device owners to know when they’ll get the Marshmallow update. Users can manually check their phones to see if the update’s available by going to the following: Settings – System Update.
