Although Android 6.0 Marshmallow update has yet to reach all intended devices, Google released another update via the Android 6.0.1 firmware. According to reports, Xiaomi and LG are already in line to receive the upgrade.
A Chinese portal recently shared hints that the Xiaomi Mi 4 will be receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. The report comes from Geek Snipper. The report shows a screenshot of the software’s detail for the device. Furthermore, it also reveals that the Xiaomi Mi 4 will be updated via firmware version MMB29M. The software requires around 100MB. Just like what Android 6.0 Marshmallow promised, the Android 6.0.1 update comes with UI changes. Users may see a much smoother interface.
Neurogadget reported that LG may also be releasing the Android 6.0.1 update to its devices. LG G3 flagship owners reportedly under Verizon already got access to the original Android 6.0 Marshmallow version. This is surprising considering that the company is often slow when it comes to pushing update. Initially, a Reddit user by the name Jrdnram_98 posted on social media that his device was running on the update. Later on, several users also reported receiving the OTA update. This means that it should just be a matter of time before the Android 6.0.1 version hits devices.
As with other users of Xiaomi and LG, it is best to check with network operators and carriers. Some users may experience early or delayed access depending on their region as well. Furthermore, confirming the model number and firmware version is important to know if the device is eligible.
There are no further official announcements yet about the matter. Users are advised to check their devices from time to time. There should be notification once the Android 6.0 OTA is available. There are custom ROMs available but these require overriding the device’s settings.
