Verizon has chosen two LG phones including LG V30, a couple of Motorola phones and two variants of the Samsung Galaxy J3 smartphones to send the OTA software updates for February 2019.
While all the six devices updated on February 18 have been provided with the latest Android security patches, some will see some performance enhancements too on the phones they have purchased from Verizon. Here are the details;
Moto E4 Prepaid
This device gets the January security patch update from Android. The last time this phone was chosen for a security update was in November 2018; the current software update is the 10th one. If you have this phone, check if the security update has been downloaded and installed.
