LG's 2014 flagship device, the G3 is very likely to receive Google's new firmware Android 6.0 Marshmallow soon. The South Korean electronics giant hasn't revealed update schedule of its devices but its roll out to the G3 is imminent.
It may be recalled that several reports had earlier claimed the LG G3 might get Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA (Over-The-Air) update in mid-December. Now, LG has hinted that the firmware could be rolled out to its devices any time.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow open source code for the G3 international models (LG-D855) is spotted on LG's official OpenSource website (via GForGames), giving a hint that it could come to the device any time soon. The firmware comes in a 1 GB zip archive.
It was earlier reported that the new Operating System is being rolled out to the G4 in Poland before releasing to South Korea to G4 models such as LG-F500K, LG-F500L and LG-F500S. Reports suggested that owners of the device in Asia, Europe and America might get the firmware OTA update before the end of the year.
However, LG later announced that Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its device has been temporarily suspended due to bugs detected during the final testing. The company had earlier confirmed that its devices like the LG G4, G Flex 2, G3 and G Stylo will received the new software.
