LG V10 Hands On-5

After LG began rolling out Marshmallow for its G4, G3, and G Stylo handsets, some were beginning to wonder if the company had forgotten all about its second 2015 flagship – the LG V10. Fear not though, as a Marshmallow update had been spotted rolling out for the handset in Turkey this week.

LG V10 Marshmallow updateThe LG V10 update comes with the build number MRA58K, software version V20b, and weighs in at a hefty 800MB, so best to connect up to your Wi-Fi network. The update will upgrade the V10 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which isn’t quite the latest 6.0.1 version, but that only really contained the new emjois anyway.

There’s the familiar core Android Doze battery manager, app permissions, and a proper silent mode included with the update, among other changes. LG has also made tweaks to its own software, including renaming QMemo+ to Capture+ and LG Bridge to LG AirDrive, as well as making adjustments to the application settings screen. Knock Code has also been tweaked, requiring 6 taps in at least 3 different quarters of the screen from now on.

The update in Turkey is for the international model, suggesting that a broader roll-out could commence any time soon. However, LG has taken a long time to roll out its Marshmallow update across the globe for the G4, so it might be wise to avoid excitement just yet and just keep a casual eye out for that OTA notification.
