Marshmallow is running on 4.6 percent of the total number of Android devices and this update is expected to roll out to more smartphones and tablets. The G5 is the first LG flagship that came pre-installed with the latest firmware and now, more handsets created by the South Korean manufacturer are waiting to be upgraded.
Last Friday, T-Mobile Product Manager Des Smith has posted on his Twitter account that the LG V10 will receive the Marshmallow update over-the-air soon, and likewise the Verizon users, T-Mobile’s subscribers will enjoy the new features such as Google Now on Tap, which provides information based on what’s on the screen; Doze Mode, which is activated when the phone is in idle; better app permissions etc. T-Mobile has brought the firmware to version H90120e and it included the March security patches, as well.
The LG G4, which is already one year old, started receiving the Marshmallow in December 2015 via Sprint, while US Cellular has released this update in January, the unlocked versions of this flagship were upgraded in February, and, finally, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T have pushed out the firmware in March,
Until now, only Verizon has upgraded its LG G3, with a 13MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front camera. Other carriers haven’t announced yet when they’ll roll out Marshmallow to this model.
LG hasn’t confirmed if Marshmallow will arrive to its G2, but the device, which was released in September 2013 has been spotted on the benchmarking site Geekbench running on the latest Android version.
Lastly, the LG G Flex 2, which arrived in January 2015 with a 5.5-inch curved P-OLED display is also waiting to receive Marshmallow, but none of the carriers has given an exact date when this will happen. Another phone that is in the same situation is the LG G4 Stylo.
