The LG G3 has finally been confirmed to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow soon.
Back in November, rumors about the Android 6.0 Marshmallow coming to the LG G3 sometime between Dec. 16 and 18 in Poland made rounds on the Internet. Without an official word from the South Korea-based smartphone maker though, many were advised to take the news with a grain of salt.
Now, recent developments indicate that the 2014 handset is indeed going to receive the much anticipated Android update, according to the LG’s developer’s website.
Based on the image, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS is going to roll out to the LG D855, which is the international variant of the LG G3. This means that this variant is likely going to get the new Android version first.
On the other hand, the arrival of the Marshmallow update to other LG G3 variants could be delayed depending on their carrier and region, where the LG D850 is for AT&T, LG D851 for T-Mobile and LG D852 for Canada.
When LG launched the LG G3 back in May 2014, the handset was easily one of the most eye-catching Android smartphones in the market. Sporting a 5.5-inch display with a 1,440 x 2,560 resolution, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 along with 2 GB worth of RAM for the 16 GB variant and 3 GB for the 32 GB model.
It also comes with a 13 MP rear-facing camera and a 2.1 MP front shooter. As for the battery, it has a 3,000mAh pack.
With these hardware specifications, the LG G3 still stands as one of the most capable smartphones today. When the new Android version arrives, it’s only going to get even better.
As of now, LG hasn’t given out a firm release date yet, but with this evidence, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow is going to land on the LG G3 in due time.
