Verizon will start rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for LG V10 sometime today.
The unlocked, international models of the LG V10 started receiving the new software package towards the beginning of this month. Now, Verizon, which is not known for rolling out timely updates, has made an exception and decided to keep the well-received LG V10 with a secondary ticker display up-to-date.
Upon installing the update, Verizon’s LG V10 should show the following software version: VS99022A. This firmware will bring in all the Marshmallow goodness like Google Now on Tap, Silent Mode, Direct Share, battery life enhancer Doze and more control on app permissions. To top it off, this update also packs some performance improvements and bug fixes.
The Android 6.0 marshmallow OTA update for LG V10 will be rolled out in phases. Hence, not all V10 users will be receiving the firmware today. As the size of the downloadable file is quite big, V10 users are advised to use Wi-Fi connection. To manually check for the update, navigate to Settings -> About phone -> Software updates.
Other carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T have not updated their LG V10 to Android 6.0 yet, Phone Arena reported. There is no official word available on the possible roll out date either.
On the other hand, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have already started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update for LG G4 in phases, across the globe. For those not in the know, Sprint and U.S. Cellular had already updated the 2015 flagship G4 with the latest software package.
The predecessor LG G3 has been updated to the latest OS by Verizon and others are expected to follow suit. Flexible display-clad LG G Flex 2 and the relatively smaller siblings like LG G4 S and LG G3 S are also eligible for Marshmallow update. However, there is no information available on the rollout date.
Even though, the LG G2 is not eligible for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, it was reportedly spotted at a benchmark test site running Android 6.0. In any case, readers should note that benchmark spotting does not guarantee official firmware roll out.
