Google has been preparing its new Android 6.0 Marshmallow for quite a while and it seems that a good part of its Nexus devices will be the first ones that will get this new operating system. Today we’re going to talk about the devices that will be updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the ones that will stick to the Android Lollipop (for now).
One of the good things about owning a Nexus device is that you know that it will be one of the first phones/tablets that will get the newest Android OS update once it gets released. Google has announced its new Nexus 6P and 5X devices, which will be the first phones that will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. These two devices will be released tomorrow, on October 5, 2015, and in 1-2 weeks we will most likely see the Android M update getting released for other Nexus devices that currently run on Android 5.11 Lollipop.
However, it is good to know that Google also announced that the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and Nexus 10 will not receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Android Marshmallow that will be released for eligible Nexus devices will be available in the form of factory images, which must be manually installed on your Android device. However, if you’ve never done this before, we suggest you to wait until the update via OTA (over-the-air) is released.
LG G3 and G4 to be the first devices (other then Nexus) that will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow?
In concordance with GforGame, LG already listed the Android 6.0 Marshmallow option in the drop down menu on the LG G3 and LG G4 smartphones support pages. This could mean that the South Korean multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in the LG Twin Towers building in Yeouido-dong is most likely preparing its LG G3 and LG G4 devices for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If they move fast enough, these two devices will probably be the first “non-Google” devices that will get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
Do you think that the LG G3 and LG G4 will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow soon?
