LG G3 and Sprint G Stylo begin receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow
There was plenty of speculation that LG was on the verge of releasing a Marshmallow update for its last generation LG G3 flagship when the source code appeared a couple of weeks ago and the update is now officially here. As an added bonus, US carrier Sprint is also rolling out Marshmallow for its LG G Stylo.
The company’s Poland executive, Jaroslaw Bukowski, said in a tweet that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is rolling out for the LG G3 in Poland as we speak. Oddly though, the message has since been deleted, so LG is probably once again testing its Marshmallow launch in Poland before it rolls out to the rest of the world. This could take a bit of time. LG did the same thing with its Lollipop update path and Marshmallow for the LG G4.
As this update is rolling out in Europe, we’re going to assume this is for the D855 model only for now. Other variants will have to wait for a regional version of the update to arrive.
LG isn’t just updating its flagship devices to Marshmallow though, the G Stylo is also receiving the same Android 6.0 upgrade. Today Sprint has started pushing out its latest update to the handset. Unfortunately, there has been no word on when T-Mobile will update its version of the smartphone.
The update brings the version number to LS770ZV7 and it contains all the familiar Marshmallow tweaks to the OS, such as Doze and Google Now on Tap. Sprint says that the update should appear sometime over the next few days, so keep an eye out for that OTA notification or head on over to settings to force a manual check.
