LG G4 will start getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow next week


Good news, LG G4 owners! Android 6.0 is starting to roll out to your device next week! There’s just one catch: The update is only rolling out to one country initially.

LG says that G4 units in Poland will start getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow next week. Updates for Europe, Asia, and the Americas are in the works, too, but LG hasn’t given a timeframe in which we can expect to see them start rolling out.

As for what’s included in the LG G4’s Android 6.0 update, LG has chosen to highlight a few of Marshmallow’s new goodies:

  • Permissions have been simplified with greater control of the information applications can access, not only at the installation stage but any time
  • Silent feature for sound and vibrate mode as well as a Do Not Disturb mode to block all sounds or only alarms and notifications
  • Doze Mode which shuts down background processing of certain apps when the phone is not in use, to significantly prolong battery life

Interestingly, LG also chose Poland as the first country to get Android 5.0 for the G3 last year. Perhaps there’s a small but rabid LG fanbase in that country? Whatever reason, LG G4 owners outside of Poland are sure to be jealous of their Polish counterparts next week. Here’s to hoping that rollouts for other locales aren’t too far behind.
