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.
