Owners of the LG G4 in the company’s home nation of South Korea are now receiving the phone’s much awaited Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. It became one of the first third-party handsets to receive this software recently, when the upgrade was initially rolled out in Poland.
It seems the tests in the country have gone down well, even as the update has marched into the important South Korean market now. As for other regions from all over the world, owners of the LG G4 should expect their Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates to land in the coming weeks.
In South Korea, LG is offering the OTA download to the F500K, F500L and F500S models of the smartphone. It will enhance the device’s offerings furthermore with its fresh list of features.
Firstly, the update will provide the G4 with the Doze functionality which saves precious battery life by better managing background apps. Granular permission access, improved microSD card support and other interesting traits also make their way into this release.
