Rejoice LG G3 owners, as there are strong signs that an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update could soon be upon us. LG has just released the open source Marshmallow code for its last generation flagship (the D855 model at least) and appears to be in the testing phase.

LG still hasn’t officially announced exactly when the LG G3 will be receiving an update to Marshmallow, although it had suggested a mid-December time frame earlier in the year. The release of this 1GB source file suggests that an OTA update could be arriving any time now, perhaps even in the next few days. However, OTA updates are usually staggered, so not every country will receive them at the same time and it could take weeks before the update hits a wide range of regions. Carriers, as usual, will be substantially slower with their own updates.

LG also recently began pushing out its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for this year’s LG G4 flagship, which came in a slightly larger 1.55GB package.

Unfortunately, other LG G3 models, such as the D855K or P, will probably have to wait a little longer, as it’s just the international D855 model showing Marshmallow code for now. Keep an eye out for that update notification in the next few days and let us know when yours comes through.
