LG G3 update to Android Marshmallow to start rolling next month


There’s yet more news about the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update today, and this time it’s for those who use the LG G3. We’ve been tracking the development of this upgrade for last year’s LG flagship, and now it’s reported that the LG G3 update to Android Marshmallow will start rolling out next month.

In early October we informed readers that the official LG Korea support site had listed Android 6.0 as an OS version for the LG G3 and also the LG G4. This detailed various model numbers and was the first confirmation we had seen that this update would be heading to the LG G3 at some point.

Later in October LG announced that the Android Marshmallow update for the LG G4 was about to start being pushed out, and that users in Poland were the first in line. Further countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas would then be in line for the update. Now there’s some leaked news on the same update for the LG G3.

A new report from Poland says that the LG G3 update to Android Marshmallow will begin in December, specifically between the 16th and 18th of the month. The update is said to be in the last stages of testing, and one LG executive in Poland has since confirmed that it’s actually ready. Just the same as with the LG G4, the LG G3 update to Android Marshmallow will arrive for Poland first before rolling out to further markets worldwide.

Just before you get too excited we have to remind you that even though it looks as though owners of the LG G3 in Poland will soon be receiving this update, it could be quite some time before it reaches all users. It’s often a very slow process watching these updates extend to further regions and carrier models, so you might still need to remain patient for a while yet.

It’s always good to see reassuring signs of upgrades about to be pushed out though, so this LG G3 update news is likely to be welcomed by many. Are you wondering exactly how much longer you’ll have to wait for the Android Marshmallow update for your LG G3?

    I love my LG G3 but LG’s strategy in dealing with Android updates has been abysmal, enough to dissuade me from ever buying an LG phone in the future. Once again, and they’re famous for this, LG has elected to skip a major Android release 5.1. I’ve been stuck on Android 5.0 for many months. Until I read this article, I had given up hope of ever receiving any update be that Lollipop 5.1 or Marshmallow 6.0. That said, although the article brings good news, it does say be patient, which is good advice, especially where LG is concerned. It will be interesting to see when I actually do receive Marshmallow. I’m UK based and an EE network user. My phone model is LG-D855

    Finally, when it arrives as an OTA, should I go for it straight away? ..I mean, I hope this final phase of testing has been thorough. I remember the debacle last November when Google prematurely released Lollipop and Nexus 7 / 10 users were victims (myself included) of a major mess up by Google because that release was a disaster. This Marshmallow release should be fine, he says!?
