Google has finally officially announced the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow and we’ve already told you in a previous article that the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Alpha and many other devices from Samsung will receive the new Android OS in late 2015 – early 2016.
It seems that other device makers have also started working on the update. For example, LG is also preparing to release this update for its devices including tablets and smartphones. According to Slash Gear, the LG G4 is going to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in a matter of months (or even weeks) after it will get released.
There are rumors which say that the LG Pad II 10.1 tablet will be released during the upcoming IFA 2015 event and it will run on Android 4.4 KitKat. However, it will not stay for long on this Android OS, as LG is planning to skip the Android 5.0 Lollipop update and upgrade it directly to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow before the end of 2015.
Currently, it seems that no other LG tablet will get the Android 6.0, even if the LG Pad X 8.2 and LG G Pad II 8.0 were not released so long ago. However, we expect that this will change in the near future and LG will announce that both of these devices are going to get updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
LG G3 Might Not Receive The Android 6.0 Marshmallow
According to rumors, the upcoming LG phablet (most likely named LG G4 Pro) will run on Android 6.0 out of the box. However, nobody from LG confirmed this until now, so we should take this news with a bit of salt.
But it is good to know that even if the LG G4 Pro will not run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, it will get updated to it soon enough (most likely before the end of 2015).
Unfortunately, for the LG G3 owners, it’s not sure yet if this device will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, the device was released back in May 2014 and it’s still within the “boundaries” of the 2 year lifespan.
When it comes to the LG G2 device, things are pretty clear and it seems that this device will not receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The LG G Flex 2 that was launched during the CES 2015 event is also going to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Unfortunately, we can’t confirm (yet) if the LG G Flex will be upgraded to this upcoming Android OS.
