LG – the Korean giant, in an official statement says that, the flagship G4 will get the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS upgrade starting next week.

According to the LG Newsroom, LG soon releasing the Marshmallow upgrade in stages, beginning with Poland, then rest of Europe as well as the U.S. and Asia. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow will bring a variety of potential changes and added features such as fingerprint support, custom Chrome tablatures, power-economy developments (Doze), USB Type-C support for more faster charge, the Android Pay service with NFC, and so on. The Doze Mode, which should double standby time for the device, by shutting down most background processes when the phone is not in use.

Chris Yie, the vice president and head of advertising of LG said the following regarding the upgrade “BY WORKING CLOSELY WITH GOOGLE, LG continues to be in a position TO BRING ANDROID 6.0 TO THE G4 AHEAD OF ANY OF OUR COMPETITORS”.

Another highly demanded feature has been the overhauled permissions system, which is now not just much more simplified, but it also gives users the ability to control which permissions an app can use. Access to the Internet can’t be disabled through the permission system, which means in-app ads can’t be blocked this way, either.

The Android 6.0 update will also bring a silent feature for sound and vibrate mode, as well as a Do Not Disturb mode, which gives users control over which type of sound can be allowed to play when using it.


The LG G4 is an important opponent of the Samsung Galaxy S6. It features a 5.5-inch QHD Screen with a pixel density of 534 PPI (2560 x 1440 pixels resolution). The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 808 hexa-core SoC that is paired with 32GB expandable internal memory and clubbed with 3GB of RAM. There is an 16-megapixel sensor at the rear and also an 8-megapixel selfie unit at the front. The LG G4 was earlier launching using 5.1 Lollipop, which will get the Marshmallow upgrade next week.
