Rumors are circulating that LG G2, G3 and G4 are skipping the Android 5.1.1. Lollipop update and instead being treated to some Marshmallow with Android M.
The report wouldn’t come as a surprise since LG, in the past, has gone ahead and skipped KitKat updates in order to give its devices a boost with Lollipop.
As reported by Yibada, chances are that LG is awaiting Android M’s arrival for users since LG G2, G3 and LG G4 haven’t yet received the Android 5.1.1. Lollipop update.
Speculations about Android M being the last OS update for LG G2 are also rife. According to GSM Arena, LG G2 will be making its way out of the markets.
Android M had already been released for developers, and is expected to be coming out for the public in the fall. This gives rise to speculations that the new Nexus 5, also expected to be launched about the same time, may be the first offering to come pre-loaded with Android M.
It is known that the new Google OS is bringing some neat features such as Doze, which enables the phone to go on a deep sleep-state. Additionally, enhancements with regards to mobile payments, phone charging, applications and the mobile web experience, are also on the horizon.
Fans with Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 could try out the M update from Google. Android aficionados could get the developer preview of the OS from here.
As for the LG devices in question, whether the smartphones will be treated to Android M or receive a Lollipop update, remains to be seen. LG users can keep an eye out for the news.
