LG G4 receives Android 6.0 update in South Korea

Last month, the LG G4 was updated to Android 6.0 in Poland. Consider that a beta test; LG was able to keep a close eye on the small number of LG G4 users in the country, making sure that there weren't any major issues with the new Android build. Things must have gone well in Poland, because today South Korean LG G4 owners are beginning to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

Sent out OTA to model numbers LG-F500K, LG-F500L, and LG-F500S, Android 6.0 includes the new Doze feature, which recognizes when your phone is not being used and shuts down background apps to preserve your battery life. Certain apps will still be able to sync, but for the most part, Doze will increase your Android phone's standby time. Also part of the update is Google Now on Tap, which brings up contextually based information based on what you are reading on your phone.

Native support for fingerprint scanners will make it easier for manufacturers to include this feature on upcoming Android handsets. And the new build will allow you to not accept certain permissions required to run an app, instead of having to agree to all of them in one bundle. The app will still run, minus the features that require your permission. The update also changes the name of two LG apps. LG’s Q+ and LG Bridge, are named Memo Capture + and LG AirDrive following the installation of Android 6.0.

So far, the HTC One A9 is the only non-Nexus phone to launch with Android 6.0, as Motorola decided to pre-install Android 5.1.1 on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2. But that should soon change, as more Android phones come to market with Android's latest and greatest build pre-installed out of the box.
