All OEMs and carriers across the globe have been instrumental in rolling out the Android 6.0 firmware update to eligible handsets since last year. Today, we have the status of the software rollout specific to a slew of LG devices.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for T-Mobile's LG G4 with model number “H811” is apparently rolling out. Even though, G4 handsets under other carriers have already received the update, T-Mobile has just started sending the firmware, GSM Arena reported.
Based on the Reddit update, many people have the Marshmallow update installed on their LG G4, although LG and T-Mobile have not officially updated the support page thus far. Most of the G4 owners with the latest firmware on board apparently installed it via “LG Bridge software” for PCs and Macs. But then, the Reddit update also said a lone G4 owner has reportedly received the software over-the-air (OTA) already.
This means, it’s just a matter of days before every T-Mobile G4 owner starts receiving the OTA update. Upon installing the update, LG G4 should be able to show the software version as “H81120I.”
It’s a known fact that the two-year old LG G3 is eligible for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Verizon is the first carrier to roll out the firmware update to the LG G3 owners. As software updates are sent in phases, within a couple of days, all the users should be able to get the OTA package.
Speaking of the international LG G3 variants, past reports suggested that this particular version will receive the update on Mar. 14. However, now, Mobi Picker said the Android 6.0 update will be rolled out sometime in February.
Moving on to the secondary-ticker display clad LG V10, T-Mobile officially added the LG V10 to the eligible Marshmallow update list. Mobi Picker says the roll out is expected to happen along with the LG G3. Therefore, the updates should reach the V10 in February.
LG G Flex 2
The LG G Flex 2, on the other hand, is also eligible for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. However, no time frame has been quoted by the company yet. Therefore, it’s safe to assume that, this budget-friendly device, which is now available at a massively discounted price of just $199.99 in Daily Steals, will only receive the firmware in March.
Does it mean LG G2 will receive the Marshmallow update? As of now, there’s no confirmation from LG in this regard. Therefore, readers are advised to take this report with the proverbial pinch of salt.
