LG G3 will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow next month
After making its G4 the first third-party smartphone to get a Marshmallow update, LG will rollout Android 6.0 to last year’s G3 next month. Users can expect to see it around mid-December, but like all big Android updates, it will take a while to reach all users.
Just like Marshmallow for the G4, the G3 update will begin its rollout in Poland, according to LG Poland’s Jaroslaw Bukowski. Providing all goes well there, the software will then makes its way to more markets for a wider release.
GSMArena, citing a separate report out of Poland, claims LG is aiming to make this update available between December 16 and 18. The firmware is likely to be made available online, so impatient G3 owners who don’t mind flashing software manually may be able to get their hands on it early.
Marshmallow will bring a whole host of performance, stability, and user interface improvements to the G3, alongside features like Doze, and Google’s new app permissions system.
