LG G2, LG G3 and LG G4 To Receive Android Marshmallow Instead of 5.1.1 Lollipop

42

It seems that the LG G2, LG G3 and LG G4 devices will not receive the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update, as some new rumors suggest that these devices will skip the latest Android Lollipop version and will jump directly to the upcoming Android M.

So, if you are an owner of a LG G2, LG3 or a LG G4 smartphone, you will still need to wait a few months until the device will receive the next Android OS update. We remind you that LG has also skipped Android updates in the past such as the Android KitKat 4.4.4.

The LG G4 is the latest smartphone from the G series and it comes with the Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. Unfortunately, as we’ve told you above, this device will most likely not receive the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update, which we’re pretty sure that it will disappoint a lot of people. The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop comes with a lot of bug fixes and enhanced functionality.

Unfortunately, there are some rumors which say that the LG G2 smartphone will certainly not even receive the Android M version. The Android M version is already available for the developers as a preview version and it will most likely get released sometime in October 2015. However, not all LG devices will receive the new update and the ones that will be “lucky” enough to receive it will get it a few months later after the new OS will be released.

With other words, the Android M will be rolling out for the LG G4 sometime in late 2015 or early 2016, while the LG G3 will most likely have to wait a bit more.

Do you think that the Android M will be released for LG G2? When do you think that the Android M update will be available for the LG G3 and LG G4?
