LG is most likely developing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and may release it for its G3 and G4 flagships via an over-the-air (OTA) update, in the coming weeks. Although the update schedule is yet to be revealed.

The company's Korean support site has listed the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for some variants of the LG G3 and LG G4 flagships, which include the LG G3 F400S, F400K and F400L as well as the LG G4 F500S, F500K and F500L. All these variants are currently running on Android Lollipop operating system.

I'd say it's coming as the T-Mobile support page says it's in testing/already developed. (And that's a US Carrier variant)

I'm guessing this will mean a new root method will be required?

Also a 6 month+ wait for Telstra to do their "testing". Unless we can simply flash it the way we do now with locked bootloaders and injecting root.

I'm hoping that it'll only be a couple weeks before MM is released to the G4, but I'd be happy if it's before the new year. It would make sense to have it out before Xmas so people might buy the G4 as a gift.

I guess not too many of the general public are going to care/know about the latest release of android, whereas people do want something that can handle iOS 9 or whatever version they're on now.

Here's hoping for a fairly quick release and a screen saturation control!

Amazed at how much the price of the G4 has dropped. I bought mine for £360 three weeks ago and it's dropped another £42 since! Probably £299 by Xmas. Why bother waiting for a One Plus/Nexus etc.?

It is inevitable i believe because both phones use identical sensors...

We should get much better battery life, especially in stand-by. But i'm hoping for beter power managment
while in use and a better optimised cpu governor... Lag shoulden't be a problem in MM...

I'm wondering how long it will take Big Red to push this out.

Possibly, but at the same time, possibly not.

The current low effort root method actually uses a bootloader exploit which COULD not be patched by the new version (This is a BIG IF). If this is the case, we'd be able to use the same exact method as before to inject root.

Also, don't want to be a party pooper, but LG promised the Lollipop release "Soon" last year and ended up taking a long time to release it through most vendors... So I don't trust LG on that front.
