LG V10 Marshmallow update is finally here, weeks after the LG G4 and LG G3 begun receiving the same update.
While previous reports had indicated that the LG V10 handset will be receiving the Marshmallow update this March, nothing had been mentioned about the specific date this OS will be showing up. In fact, some had even started to think that LG has totally forgotten about its 2015 flagship, but as it seems, this is not true at all.
The latest reports indicate that those living in Turkey have already begun receiving the much-anticipated LG V10 Marshmallow update. This was spotted this week, which only but justifies our previous article on the same.
The new build number being pushed to the LG V10 is MRA58K and it brings the software version to V20b. As usual, software updates require that you connect your phone to the internet through a Wi-Fi network. If this is not the case, you need to make sure that the mobile connection you are getting is actually the best around.
The new LG V10 Marshmallow update is about 800MB in size, so you better have enough mobile data on your phone just in case you choose to use a data connection, otherwise, stick to a Wi-Fi network. LG has been pushing Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its other devices instead of the most up to date Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. This is the same OS that will be coming to the V10, but it still offers the best.
What does Android Marshmallow bring to LG V10?
If you own last year’s LG V10, you’ll be pleased with this new Marshmallow update. This is because the OS brings the much talked-about Doze battery management feature, better apps permissions system in addition to a proper silent mode. These come along with other obvious improvements in performance as well as fixes to bugs and errors.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow was officially unveiled more than five months ago. One reason why the OS has taken this long to reach LG V10 and other LG devices is because the company had to take the OS through a series of tests in order to make it suitable for use with its software. You will notice some subtle changes such as a change in name from QMemo+ to Capture+ as well as LG Bridge to LG AirDrive.
The available LG V10 Marshmallow update affects those using the international variant. What this means is that the update will soon be coming to your device, but given the time LG has taken to roll avail the LG G4 Marshmallow update globally, it might also take some time before the latest update comes to your region. Nonetheless, this is a good sign for owners of LG V10. Keep looking out for the OTA notification.
