LG To Start Rolling Out Marshmallow To G3 In Mid-December

November 17, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

LG G3 was one of the best smartphones last year. The G3 was LG’s flagship for 2014, and it was very popular not only because of its specs, but because of the build as well. This Korea-based tech giant has managed to pack in great specs into a really attractive and thin package, and the fact that it sports a set of rear-facing physical buttons definitely helped keep the bezels really thin all around. That being said, LG G3 is still waiting for Android 5.1 Lollipop update, but it may never get it considering that LG has already confirmed Android 6.0 Marshmallow is on the way.

Now, according to a new report from Poland, LG G3 will start receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow in mid-December, between December 16 and 18, according to the source. It seems like the update will hit Poland first, and will then roll out to other regions around the world, which is actually identical to the Marshmallow rollout for the LG G4 which is supposed to start in Poland soon (it was paused at the end of October). If this report is accurate, then LG did a really great job, presuming that the update won’t be riddled with all sorts of bugs and what not, of course.

LG G4 and G3 seems to be one of the first non-Nexus devices to get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The HTC One A9 has launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed, but other than that, only the Nexus devices currently offer the latest version of Android. It is also worth mentioning that the update for the Galaxy Note 5 seems to be around the corner, and same can be said about Moto X Style / Pure’s update.

As a reminder, the LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 2/3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of expandable internal storage. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 801 quad-core SoC along with an Adreno 330 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel OIS shooter is available on the back of this phone along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash, and the Laser Autofocus. The device packs in a 3,000mAh removable battery, and it originally shipped with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but it is upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop at the moment, from which you’ll be able to upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow directly.
