Are these are the only LG phones getting Android 6.0?

On LGWorld.com, a website that is run by the manufacturer, it was discovered that you can select a country, in this case the U.S., and are taken to a page where apps and games are listed. You then pick a phone and see which versions of Android are available for each handset. Interestingly, Android 6.0 was listed on two models.
According to LG, Android 6.0, also known as Marshmallow, will be headed to the LG G3 and the LG G4. One model not listed is the LG V10. The recently unveiled multimedia monster will launch with Android 5.1 pre-installed, and will be updated fairly quickly to Android 6.0.
The rest of you still rocking the LG G2, or some other LG model not mentioned, will have to hope that LG expands this list soon.

I am more than certain the V10 will get 6.0, I don't see why it wouldn't.

Excluding the 2 year thing, I think they should have updated the LG G2. They took so long to update it to lollypop and now it's just hanging on 5.0.2 which still isn't even the latest version of lollypop.

What happened to the title?? It is a brillinat solutin, though: depending on which "are" you left out, the sentence can be positive or interrogative. But then what is with the question mark?

I guess the LG G2 joins the HTC M7 in the doghouse. Both are still capable phones, such a shame.

They just want to force you to buy their newer phones...

Hey man, since you know a thing or two about SoCs. I wanted to ask, do you reckon SD 810 with V 2.1 would be prone to overheating in Nexus 6P ? Since I am not sure what changes Qualcomm has made to SD 810 I am not sure it would hold up under intense load. Also the One Plus 2 with its v2.1 throttles as well. So what's your thought about Sd810 V2.1 ? Thanks in advance.

All the phones except the g flex 2 use the 810 v 2.1. So i expect the same of what happened to thev1+2, m9, z3+ to happen to the 6P. If it doesn't overheat, it will throttle. If you want a phone now, don't get a qualcomm powered one. They have horrible efficiency (read battery life ) and performance. The 810 is garbage, 808 is midrange grade and the others are no worthy of flagship either. Either go for a samsung or iPhone, or wait for an 820 powered one. 820 is going to be much superior.

Great. Thanks, man! I'll probably wait for S7 then. Hopefully it would be released by Feb. next year. I was really interested in 6P tho. Stock android + amoled was the best combination for me. I didn't want to end up with an oven again. As my current phone with Sd615 gets stupid hot even on fuking angry birds.... Savage...

Worst part about owning an Android, the horrid update relationship. Why don't all the oems just release kernels and other required code library to the romming community, they will take care of the rest. HTC, LG, Sony and the rest should create a standard repository for all their libaries so people like cyanogenmod can just compile the latest Android versions with ease. And release all their phones with unlocked bootloader. Or do what moto does, use stock Android.

I agree. I always put a custom rom on my device (even on the Nexus) and it does rule out certain handsets, since custom rom support is awful for it. Usually it's the manufacturers fault for not releasing the drivers/kernel for the community.

Just saying, its the dark side of iOS too iOS is different, Apple gives you "iOS 9" but without most the new features and each update reduces performance But at least with Apple's way you still get the security updates Google only just started security updates for older device, it seems the Nexus 4 and 7 (2012) are going to get security updates, but we don't know for sure
