Early last month, Alcatel’s USA Twitter handle shared exciting news for Idol owners who have been anticipating an Alcatel Idol 3 Marshmallow update. According to the handle, the Marshmallow update had begun seeding out to unlocked Alcatel Idol 3 smartphones. See specifications of the Idol 3 (5.5).

We haven’t seen the Alcatel Idol 3 Marshmallow update yet
It does not seem that there has been any announcement about the roll out elsewhere. However, we have been checking for the update on our review unit without success. The update is yet to show up on it till now. Just three days before the announcement by Alcatel USA, Mr. Mo had tweeted at Alcatel Nigeria’s handle to ask about the update and was replied with, “Very soon. We will keep you informed.” So, we wait.
If you own one of these beautiful devices and have received the update OTA, do share the news with everyone below. Don’t forget to check out our Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5) gallery too.
