LG V10 gets Android Marshmallow

LG V10 Android handset gets Marshmallow update

The Android 6.0 update for this handset was spotted in Turkey earlier this week, so it should hit other areas later this month as well.
Codrut Nistor,

Although LG V10 came out last October, it only had Android 5.1.1 Lollipop inside at launch. Android 6.0 Marshmallow was ready the same month and, although most handsets that get it these days receive version 6.0.1, it looks like the LG V10 only gets the initial build.

According to Turkish website LG Destek, LG V10 handsets in the country got the update starting earlier this week. The 800 MB firmware carries the MRA58K build number while the software version is V20b. The update has kernel 3.10.84 and, unfortunately, the Android security patch level value is "2016-02-01," so no March update, either.

The list of changes consists of the usual Android Marshmallow goodies - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, multiple tweaks, as well as various improvements added by LG to its own UI elements/apps, for example renaming QMemo+ to Capture+ and LG Bridge to LG AirDrive. The update spotted in Turkey is for the international LG V10 model, so the rest of the world should get it anytime soon 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.
