For those of you who are already waiting for the release of the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, well, it’s on the way. Marshmallow is the name desert name Google decided on for new operating system that will be pushed out to Android smartphones starting with Nexus devices over the course of the next couple of months. As is the case with previous Android OTA install, the specific availability will be cell carrier specific and will be announced preceding the launch.
We’re already hearing the LG G Flex 4 will come preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but will be upgradable to Android 7.0 shortly after the launch. This was also the case with the 5.0 OTA install, but we’re hoping we won’t see the same delays that plagued Lollipop during its initial release.
6.0 Marshmallow brings forth many improvements including a much more efficient operating system which will appeal to multimedia users for sure. The productivity of 6.0 versus 5.0 is nowhere near the same which is also expected when going from 6.0 to 7.0 during Q2 of 2017.
The LG G Flex 4 operating system update is expected to become available in March for some, and maybe not until the summer of 2017 for others. The initial launch during the end of 2016 on Nexus devices will give us more info as LG is likely to assure that all glitches and problems with the 7.0 operating system are a thing of the past.
As of this time, there are no specific details on the new features Android 7.0 will bring which we can expect to hear all the details after the 2016 Android Developers Conference during the summer before the launch. There was some speculation that 7.0 would be pre-installed on the LG G Flex 4, but this is improbable speculation as of now.
