LG's gearing up to roll out Android Marshmallow to its devices, and you can install it as soon as next week... if you own a G4 handset and live in Poland. The South Korean manufacturer will release the latest Android version in the European country first, but it promises that America, Asia and the rest of Europe will follow. Unfortunately, the company doesn't have exact dates for those markets yet. Local carriers will likely announce the upgrade when it becomes available, though; in the US, T-Mobile already confirmed that the G3 and the G4 will get Marshmallow in the future.

LG claims the G4 is the first in the world to get Marshmallow besides Google's own Nexus devices. According to its VP of marketing communications, Chris Yie, it's because the company worked closely with Google to make it happen.

By working closely with Google, LG has been able to bring Android 6.0 to the G4 ahead of any of our competitors. 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.
