Owners of LG devices like LG G4, G Flex 2, G3 and G Stylo must be over the moon when the South Korean company announced a few days ago that its handsets will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update before other competitors, but the excitement could be short-lived as the firmware update schedule has taken a new turn.

Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company, had said a couple of weeks ago that the LG G4, which was released in April this year, will get Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update before other competitors get.

"While speed alone isn't an indicator of great service, it does go a long way toward giving consumers the confidence that LG is committed to its existing customers first," Chris had said.

While LG didn't confirm the release date of the new software, several reports went on to claim that it will be rolled out to the LG G4 owners in Poland in October before releasing it to Europe, Asia and America but that will not happen.

According to a report by Geek Snack, Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the LG G4 has been delayed indefinitely due to technical issues. It went on to say that the delay could be because of bugs being detected during the final testing of the firmware on LG device. 

Meanwhile, LG has announced that Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its device has been temporarily suspended, giving a hint that it could be rolled out any time once the issue is solved.
