The Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update for the secondary ticker display-clad LG V10 is now being rolled out by AT&T. Both Verizon and T-Mobile already updated their V10s with the latest firmware.
The Marshmallow update is being rolled out in phases. Hence, it might take a while before hitting all the AT&T versions of LG V10. The notification can be checked manually by navigating to device’s Settings -> About Device -> Software Update.
GSM Arena says the Android 6.0 update weighs 1GB and hence, a stable Wi-Fi connection and at least 50 percent battery charge are recommended prior to downloading the firmware.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update brings in Doze Mode. This Mode helps in saving the stand-by battery life of Android handsets by reducing the background activity after a span of inaction. This version also comes with Google Now on Tap, which provides contextual search based on the content displayed on the Android device.
Furthermore, the Android 6.0 update offers greater control over app permissions. A bunch of new and creative emojis are also part of the firmware bundle.
On a related note, the LG V10 can now be purchased with a discount of $130 via eBay. However, this offer is valid only for a limited period of time.
Moving on to other LG handsets, Sprint and U.S. Cellular updated their respective LG G4 units with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, on the other hand, have also rolled out the updates recently.
When it comes to LG G3, so far, only Verizon has updated its handsets and other carriers are expected to follow suit. The upper-mid-range LG G Flex 2, LG G4 S and LG G3 S handsets are earmarked to receive the Marshmallow update soon.
Technically, the LG G2 is not eligible for the firmware update as it crossed the two-year updation cycle. But then, a G2 unit with Marshmallow on board paid a visit to benchmark testing site fuelling the possibility of Android 6.0 rollout. However, there is no confirmation available on this.
