It was earlier reported that the LG V10 will be getting the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update sometime this week. As it turns out, following the update to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, T-Mobile has started rolling out the latest firmware to V10 owners in the U.S.
In general, OTA updates are rolled out in phases and hence, LG V10 users may have to wait a couple of days before the firmware hits all the devices. Android Central noted that the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update is also available for download via the LG Bridge app for Windows desktop and Mac users.
Upon installing the software package, LG V10 users should see the following software version on their devices: H90120E. Apart from T-Mobile, Verizon also updated its LG V10 with the Marshmallow goodness recently.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update comes with the powerful Doze Mode. This feature helps in saving the stand-by battery life of any Android device. The firmware also brings in Google Now on Tap option, which allows contextual search depending on the displayed content on the handset.
To top it off, the Android 6.0 update will offer more control over app permissions. A slew of creative emojis will also make an entry with this update on board. Reports also say monthly Android security update will be bundled with the software package specific to LG V10.
Meanwhile, carriers like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have already started updating the LG G4 with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. The LG G4 units specific to Sprint and U.S. Cellular have been updated to Marshmallow.
Speaking of LG G3, Verizon has updated its devices, whereas other carriers are expected to roll out the update soon. There is no official word available on the LG G2, although technically it’s not eligible to receive the update. The LG G Flex 2, LG G4 S and LG G3 S are earmarked to receive the firmware. But then, there’s no official rollout date available at this point.
