AT&T LG G Pad X 10.1 gets updated

AT&T updates LG G Pad X 10.1 Android tablets on its network

The new firmware is still based on Android Lollipop but packs several security updates and AT&T’s NumberSync support plus the Phone application.

Although most carriers and device makers have been focusing on smartphones and phablets lately, tablets are not dead yet. However, there are not many Android 6.0 Marshmallow-powered slates around and updating some older models to the latest Android version seems to take more than it should. LG G Pad X 10.1 on AT&T is such a tablet and, while the latest update for it brings a few noticeable changes, it is not based on Android M.

AT&T has the model V930 of the G Pad X 10.1 in its portfolio and they announced the update earlier this week. The highlights mentioned by the official support page are compatibility with NumberSync, including the Phone application, as well as the usual security updates. This makes the G Pad X 10.1 the first Android-driven tablet to get support for AT&T's service that launched back in October 2015. NumberSync allows multiple devices connected to AT&T's network to use a single number.

The software version of the update is V93011l, uses kernel 3.4.0 and carries the LMY47V build number. Baseband version is MPSS.DI.2.0.c2-00105-M8974AAAAANAZM-1, while the file size is 309 MB. The new firmware is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. As usual, delivery is done via OTA, but those in a hurry can check manually via Settings>About tablet>Update Center>Software update>Update Now.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
