LG G4 Earns Early Marshmallow Update
LG today said the G4, its flagship handset, will begin to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow system update as soon as next week. LG will first push the operating system upgrade to devices in Poland, followed by other markets in Europe, Asia, and eventually the Americas. Android 6.0 adjusts permissions, boosts power efficiency thanks to Doze mode, and makes it easier to control notifications. The LG G4 is sold by most major carriers in the U.S.
LG is holding a major launch event today, and hasn't been shy about dropping hints as to the content. Their new flagship phone for 2015 - the G4 - will be announced.
AT&T's variant of the LG G4 does little more than trade one set of bloatware for another. The performance is about on-par with Verizon's model, which is to say this Android phone does a really good job.
LG's flagship for 2015 is a tricky device to classify. It both lags and surpasses the competition.
LG revealed the G4 at an event in New York City today. The phone boasts an impressive spec sheet and an optional leather rear cover.
