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.

Nice but still doesnt beat already having 6.0 on Nexus 5. It actually feels faster than 5.1.1. I'll have to see how it holds up.

They have their test facilities there or something. But anyone with a international model should be able to flash KDZ once it's out. I had lollipop on my Nordic G3 the day after OTA came in Poland.

lol I'm still waiting for the OTA update on my unlocked Nexus 6. Yes I'm aware that I can manually update it, but I don't want to wipe my phone and go through the hassle.

Using a nexus phone and not using any developer features is sure interesting!

You assume that I don't have the developer features turned on sure is interesting!

This is a good precedence, maybe other manufacturers will follow.

What Android can't do but Apple can is that whenever Apple's latest OS is rolled out, it always comes to all iDevices. As an Android fan, it feels sad about his.

You cant expect to buy a phone that all OEM get its OS for free and expect the OS manufacturer to sit down and make updates for 55.000 different models. Free is great but has its big drawbacks as usual. If google was charging each OEM for android pretty sure they would update their devices immediately but thats not the nature of open source android.
