6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of Android, hit Google's own Nexus devices last week, and LG is planning to get the update out to its own phones as soon as possible. The company just announced that G4 owners — in Poland, at least — will get the OS upgrade from next week, with the Americas, Asia, and Europe to follow. LG says its Polish G4 customers will be the first in the world to get Marshmallow.
"By working closely with Google, LG has been able to bring Android 6.0 to the G4 ahead of any of our competitors," says LG marketing VP Chris Yie in a statement. LG is also collaborating with Google on the Marshmallow-equipped Nexus 5X smartphone, set to be released later this month alongside Huawei's bigger Nexus 6P.
LG is yet to announce details of any other phones that are to receive Marshmallow, or when the software will come to other markets. As ever with Android updates, the eventual timetable may have more to do with carriers than LG itself.
