G4 users can look forward to the latest version of Android and to being one the first non-Nexus owners to officially carry Marshmallow.

LG G4 owners will soon receive the much-anticipated Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update and will be one of the first non-Nexus devices to officially support the new OS. The rollout will begin next week starting in Poland. The manufacturer promises that the update for European and American markets will follow shortly. Of course, "shortly" in Android terms can mean weeks to months.

Android 6.0 offers a number of features and stability improvements for simplifying logins, authorizations, and app control. For example, users can now more easily deny Apps access to personal information and location after installation. Marshmallow also carries a "do not disturb" mode that will prevent any sounds from playing while allowing vibration alerts. The Doze mode reduces background activities from power-hungry apps to extend battery life.

"By working closely with Google, LG has been able to bring Android 6.0 to the G4 ahead of any of our competitors," says LG marketing VP Chris Yie during the announcement. The G4 has been very well received and is one of the remaining few flagship devices from a major manufacturer to sport both a removable battery and MicroSD slot.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
