LG G4 Becomes First Non-Nexus Smartphone To Taste Fluffy Android Marshmallow
If you recall, LG made similar claims last year about being the first to deliver Android 5.0 Lollipop, also to LG smartphone owners in Poland. We’re not so sure what makes the Polish market so appealing to LG when it comes to pushing out new OS updates, but it seems to working well for the company.
“By working closely with Google, LG has been able to bring Android 6.0 to the G4 ahead of any of our competitors,” said LG Mobile VP and Marketing Head Chris Yie. “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.”
According to T-Mobile’s website LG’s commitment to Marshmallow will also extend to the G3 and G Stylo. We’ll have to get confirmation from LG on what other recently released smartphones will receive the Marshmallow treatment.
As for other Android OEMs, Motorola definitely talked a good game about its tenacity in bringing Marshmallow to its range of smartphones, although it was technically beaten to the punch by LG. After all, Motorola likely has the least amount of work to put into pushing out Marshmallow, as it runs a near stock version of of Android (and its Marshmallow update includes even fewer Motorola-specific apps).
