The LG G4 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is moving along quick, with multiple regions and even US carriers offering it already, and more are coming soon. In fact, LG was the first manufacturer to release an update after Google unveiled Android 6.0, and today we have more details for owners of both the LG G3 and the LG G4.
Google released the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software update back on October 5th, and the first non-Nexus device to receive an update was the LG G4 just three weeks later. We’ve since watched it arrive for Sprint and US Cellular in the United States, and now Canada along with Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile could be next.
The first LG G4 Android 6.0 update in the US was with Sprint, which surprisingly arrived in December ahead of all expectations. However, LG has yet to share details regarding other carriers, and carriers themselves, are silent as well. Below is some new information that should shed light on the situation for current owners.
Those with the LG G3 and LG G4 know Android 6.0 Marshmallow is coming, but the question that remains is when. Sprint’s release came with a few small details and a changelog, but that’s it. Those with the LG G4 on AT&T, Verizon and more are still waiting, but a recent update from Canadian carrier TELUS could be revealing.
This week TELUS updated its Android 6.0 Marshmallow roadmap for a slew of devices, and added release dates for the LG G3 and LG G4. Owners can look forward to February 1st, and mid-March for the older LG G3. The release date image and more details can be found below.
Shown above, Canadian Carrier TELUS suggests the LG G4 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will begin on February 1st, and the older LG G3 will be over a month later in the middle of March. Now this is only for one carrier outside of the US, but often times these update arrive in the United States first, especially with LG.
Given the fact that the LG G4 Android 6.0 update has already rolled out to two carriers in the United States (Sprint and US Cellular) other bigger carriers like AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile should be up next. None have made announcements or confirmed a date, but T-Mobile did release a roadmap last year with both smartphones on board.
It’s worth noting that TELUS also has January release dates for the HTC One M8 and M9, which are on track for roughly the same weeks in the United States. If anything, this gives owners a rough idea of when to expect the update, but not an exact date. LG is working hard to deliver Android 6.0, and some users have experienced a few problems with it, which could be the cause for the delay on other carriers. LG may be making small tweaks before pushing it out to other carriers.
That being said, it looks like LG is close to delivering Android 6.0 Marshmallow for both the LG G3 and the newer LG G4 in the United States and Canada in the next few weeks. As soon as we know more or any announcements are made, we’ll update with all the details.
