The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update started rolling out to the LG G4 users from the US and now, the owners of the LG G3 smartphone connected to Verizon Wireless are now able to install this update on their handsets, as a Reddit user called Jrdnram_98 has announced on the social networking website that, recently, he received the OTA notification and he proved that by showing a screenshot with his phone running on this OS. As for the LG V10, this is the 18th device on T-Mobile’s list of smartphones that will get this update.
Jrdnram_98, the Reddit user, has posted a screenshot of his LG G3 device which has received the build number MRA58K of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the software version VS98546A. This is somehow odd, because no other user from this website has mentioned anything about their devices receiving this update and this screenshot made everyone wonder if it’s only a photoshopped image or something else. Until we’ll figure out if the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be rolled out to other LG G3 devices connected to Verizon, we’ll continue to dig deeper. After the announcement made by the aforementioned user, other G3 owners have said that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the software version 46A or VS98546A has landed on their devices last night, around 7PM Pacific.
As for the LG V10, T-Mobile has added it to its list of devices that will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, being the 18th phone on that list, alongside the other LG models: G3, G4 and G Stylo. At this moment, the V10 is in the Manufacturer Development stage. T-Mobile has three phases of the update process and this is the first one, but it’s not sure when the update will start rolling out.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes with a bunch of new features: Doze (the battery saver which extends the device’s life by up to 30 percent), Google Now On Tap, A Memory Manager, Support for Fingerprint Scanners, App Permissions etc.
