Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the LG V10 international variant goes live
posted by Luis D. / Mar 09, 2016, 9:55 AM
Owners of LG's dual-firing front cam hero phone, the eponymous V10, had a bit of waiting to do for an Android Marshmallow update. But before long, LG delivered on its promises and started seeding the Android 6.0 update to the device's international variant in South Korea, Turkey, and presumably other countries across the globe. It looks like users won't be getting the new emojis added in version 6.0.1, but then again, LG has its own custom-designed expressions in its software.
Weighing around 850MB, the update bumps the phablet's software version to V20b with the build number MRA58K. LG has brought most of the stock Android Marshmallow functionality to the phablet, such as the power-saving Doze Mode, Direct Share, new app settings and permissions, reworked silent mode, and dynamic automatic brightness adjustment, among other things. Also, QMemo+ has been renamed to Capture+, and LG Bridge is now known as LG AirDrive. Wicked!
Post updating, Knock Code now requires as many as 6 taps in at least 3 different corners of the screen to work. Some of you may have to learn a new, more complex pattern that takes more time and opens more room for error and mistriggers.
The LG V10 is the most recent LG smartphone to receive a Marshmallow update. Before it, LG updated the G4, G3, and G Stylo handsets. We have no intel on how long it will take before the new firmware has reached beyond Korea and Turkey, so for the time being, just keep an eye out for a notification that prompts you for an OTA update.

Still waiting for LG to make a 5" version of the V10, preferrably with SD820 and wireless charging. No secondary display would be fine. :)

I'm still waiting a worthy device to replace my LG G2. LG said before G5 announcement, that will be the phone to replace for the G2 users. Sure hardver is nice, metal etc, but still not as compact as G2. screen to body ratio and battery went worse with the new gens.
