T-Mobile LG V10 is about to receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow

If you happen to be rocking the LG V10 carried by T-Mobile, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be making its way over to you next week. The latest flavor of Android has already reached the international version of the phablet, and more recently, V10 users on Verizon were also furnished with the update. Very soon -- and not before time -- those on T-Mo will be able to dive into the new features.

Though LG has sought to bring something new to the table with its modular, flagship G5, it wasn't so long ago that the Korean firm unveiled the V10. A phablet with some unique quirks of its own including a neat-in-theory ticker display, it promised a great deal. Unfortunately in practise, the V10 gets many of the basics quite wrong, and as we mentioned in our review, feels rather more like an unfinished concept than the real deal. 

T-Mobile Product Manager Des Smith has shared news of the impending update via his Twitter account, though hasn't issued a specific date as yet. Rather, he notes that those wielding the V10 should begin to see the OTA as of next week. 

The update will likely be the standard Android 6.0 update rolled out to international and Verizon models previously. Therefore, users will get features like new app permissions, Google Now on Tap and Doze, but will probably miss out on the new emoji pack offered by Android 6.0.1.

I currently have the V10 and have used many LG phones before it. Never had a problem with their softwares at all.

Agreed. I love their UI. All the while everyone else hates it. I mean it has some elements of vanilla android and not to mention I really enjoy how LG let's you change the icons to whatever you want. I know the app Zedge offers this but not as fully customizable as LG's software does it. I like LG over other MFGs b/c they seem to stand out [in my opinion] with their practical approach to making devices. Useful real world features and their design is always different than any other [major] OEM out there.

I really hope this 6.0 TMO OTA includes a fix for the fingerprint issue with the V10 not working with cases.

Never thought of adding profiles. No offense but how would that make a difference ?

LG's software has always been questionable, even from medieval times(speaking of java). I will update to 6.0 though.

I have the LG V10 with Verizon and its been asking me for an update to 6.0 for the last 2 weeks and i have refused to do it... LG's software updates are really Questionable.
