AT&T is having a busy end to the week, with quite a number of its devices currently receiving different OTA updates.
To begin with, the carrier is rolling out the latest February Android security patch to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. The update comes with software version G928AUCS4CQB2 and weighs 166MB. To download and install it, you must be using the previous software version that comes with baseband version QA1. Since it’s an OTA update, not all Galaxy S6 Edge+ users on AT&T will be able to install it at once. The process will be gradual, with some users probably receiving the treat later next week.
Even though some markets have started seeing the new Android 7.0 Nougat on the Galaxy S6 Edge+, the latest update on AT&T is still based on Marshmallow. However, the Nougat treat shouldn’t be too far away. If you can’t wait for the OTA notification to hit your phone, you can trigger the update manually by going to Settings>About phone>System updates. Besides updating your phone’s security patch level, it also gets bug fixes and performance improvements via this update.
The same Android security patch is also rolling out to the ZTE Maven aka Z812, but this one is for the month of March. Unlike the Galaxy S6 Edge+, this one weighs in at just 18MB and it carries build number Z812V1.0.0B24. To receive the update, your phone must be installed with at least software version Z812V1.0.0B23. This device is still running Android 5.1 Lollipop and with this update, it will be a new life breather thanks to the bug fixes and performance enhancements it carries.
Also receiving OTA treats at AT&T are the LG V10 and LG G5. The former was released in 2015 while the latter came in 2016, but both handsets are now receiving the latest March Android security patch as well. Where the LG G5 is being treated to an update with software version H82020i, the LG V10 is being updated to version H90021z.
Unlike the LG G5 which already runs Android 7.0 Nougat, AT&T’s LG V10 is still based on Android Marshmallow and as such, this latest OTA update is also based on this OS. Still, the phone is expected to receive the Nougat treat at some point in H2 2017.
Just like Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and ZTE Maven, the OTA updates for LG G5 and LG V10 are gradual and as such, it will take some time before all units receive the update. On the contrary, you can check for the update manually by heading to your G5 or V10’s Settings>About phone>System updates.
