LG Electronics, one of the leading mobile tech companies in the world, has announced that it will delay the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its flagship smartphone, the LG G4. The update was supposed to roll out to LG G4 owners in Poland first, followed by other regions soon after. However, LG has not given any specific reason for the postponement or a new timeline for the update.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the latest version of Google's operating system for mobile devices. It brings several new features and improvements, such as Doze mode, which saves battery life by putting the device into a deep sleep when not in use; Google Now on Tap, which provides contextual information and actions based on what is on the screen; and app permissions, which give users more control over what data and functions apps can access.
The LG G4 is one of the most acclaimed smartphones of 2015, featuring a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilization, a removable 3000 mAh battery, and a leather back cover option. The device currently runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with LG's custom user interface.
LG G4 users who are eagerly waiting for the Marshmallow update will have to be patient for a little longer. LG has not confirmed when the update will resume or which regions will receive it first. In the meantime, users can check for software updates manually by going to Settings > General tab > About phone > Software info.While LG G4 users are still waiting for the Marshmallow update, Samsung has already started rolling out the update for its flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S7.
