LG G4 Marshmallow update coming next week for some
It looks like LG is going to be the first manufacturer out of the gate with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for a non-Nexus device. LG has announced that it is prepping to release the update to the G4 next week, but the rollout is going to be starting small, and it is unclear how quickly the update will make it out to users.

Just like it did with the G3 and the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, LG will be rolling out the update to users in Poland first. LG says that other markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas will follow afterwards, but no timetable is set there. 

Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company, said in the press release:


According to LG, specific release windows for other regions will be announced as those rollouts get started. LG did not note any features it may have added to the experience. 


LG Customers in Poland to be World's First to Receive Android Upgrade

SEOUL, Oct. 15, 2015 ― Owners of LG Electronics' (LG) G4 smartphone will be the first in the world to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. LG G4 owners in Poland will begin receiving their M upgrade beginning next week with other markets in Europe, Asia and the Americas to follow.

The latest update to the Android operating system offers a number of features designed to enhance the user experience, such as:

Permissions have been simplified with greater control of the information applications can access, not only at the installation stage but any time
Silent feature for sound and vibrate mode as well as a Do Not Disturb mode to block all sounds or only alarms and notifications
Doze Mode which shuts down background processing of certain apps when the phone is not in use, to significantly prolong battery life
"By working closely with Google, LG has been able to bring Android 6.0 to the G4 ahead of any of our competitors," said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company. "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."

Details of the Android M upgrade schedule and affected models will be announced in individual markets.
