Many OEMS continue to catch up to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow release. This time, it appears LG is working on seeding the firmware to more of its units as news about LG V10 receiving the software surfaced.
Specifically, there have been reports about LG V10 users in Turkey and South Korea receiving the update. Everyone knows that the device will eventually be updated to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware, but it may be a big hurdle that the software is just seeding to two countries, according to GSM Arena. With this in mind, people with LG V10 units in other parts of the globe may have to extend their patience a little bit more.
This is especially true if LG is focusing on these two markets for testing. The good news though, is that the software seems finalized so regional carriers will just need to work on their additions. International rollout should be in a few weeks.
In another report from Phone Arena, it appears that users will not be having new emojis from the Android 6.0.1 version although it should be appeasing to know that LG offers own custom-designed expressions through its software.
Furthermore, people will need to allot around 850MB for the update. The firmware enhances the phablet’s software version to V20b through build number MRA58K. In Turkey, users can expect the software to be available via over-the-air at 846MB.
As with other devices updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, users can expect the usual treats like Doze Mode, new app permissions and settings, Direct Share, Google Now on Tap, dynamic automatic brightness adjustment and improved silent mode among others. Users are also advised to connect their devices to a strong Wi-Fi or cellular connection before download. It is best to charge the devices fully to avoid power interruptions and other problems.
