The LG G4 and its predecessor, the G3 are seemingly all set to be blessed with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Hints about this have come via their support pages in Korea. Despite this, the company is still make an official announcement on this matter.
Google will be making the stock version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow available on October 5. That’s the date on which it will start reaching the older Nexus devices, but companies that offer their own skins usually tend to delay their updates by a few months. It hence remains to be seen how long LG takes to bring its own version of the OS to the G4 and the G3.
As revealed by GSM Arena, the firm’s Korean support website features Android 6.0 as an OS option for three different models each of the G4 and the G3. Although clicking on them does nothing, this is indeed an indication that support for the Marshmallow treat is being worked upon right now.
This freshest version of Google’s operating system brings with it a number of new features as well as performance improvements. A trait named Doze is able to identify that you’re sleeping with the help of sensors, in order to limit background app activity, thus increasing the standby time of your devices.
Google Now on Tap is another interesting addition to Android 6.0. It offers an even more contextually aware version of Google Now that can be accessed from any screen by long-pressing the home button.
Let us now wait and watch when LG is ready with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow treats for its G4 and G3 smartphones.
