Many smartphones from LG have been upgraded to Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it isn’t available for the LG V10 yet. Most of the update were available to other LG phones in the last week.
Today, Verizon confirms that the Android 6.0 update is ready to go. The company will start to roll the update to consumers soon enough. According to the information from the Verizon’s support page, they are now preparing to release the update and push it through over the air method.
You might not receive this update instantly at this moment. And it could take up to a week to arrive on your LG V10 smartphone. Verizon also noted if you don’t see any notification about the update, you should go to Settings > About > System Updates and then check for the update.
The version number of the Android 6.0 you will get is VS99022A. This upgrade will add Google Android 6.0 Marshmallow to your device, bring a few new features but not much. It’s just Google Android 6.0 mOS (mobile operating system) with LG’s software.
Verizon didn’t say how large of the update. But the full version of the Android 6.0 could weigh about 1GB. You should prepare for a little bit of downtime of your smartphone when you got the update notification. There is also a good news that Verizon allows you to download this update package through mobile broadband data (mobile network). It doesn’t require you to download the update through Wi-Fi network like most other carriers and manufacturers.
Once again, we want to confirm that you might not see the update notification at this moment, and it could take up to a week to arrive at your device. If you are looking for something like a firmware file to flash your LG V10 right away, we would suggest you find it from some developer forms like XDA.
