Does anyone remember a little phone called LG Leon that T-Mobile started carrying back in May after a low-key international debut the month before? Anyone? Anyone at all?

Well, LG ‘members, and the same goes for America’s leading “UnCarrier”, which undoubtedly worked closely with T-Mo and pretty hard too for a presumably microscopic number of users to feast on Marshmallow goodies.

Granted, they’re not as fresh and delicious as Nougaty treats, but for a humble device like the 4.5-inch LG Leon, released with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed, they probably have the whiff of a little slice of heaven.

Mind you, this ain’t just an uncharacteristically small handheld by today’s standards, but also horribly low-res (480 x 854 pixels), far from a multitasking beast (with 1GB RAM inside), and generally rather laggy, courtesy of an ancient Snapdragon 410 processor.

Once promoted to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow though, Google security improvements and all, Magenta’s Leon may begin to feel like a smart phone again, smoother, more functional and longer-lasting between charges than ever. Look for the over-the-air update today, and count your blessings if you receive it, even if there’s absolutely no chance you’ll also get Nougat. Ever.
