Marshmallow For AT&T’s LG G Vista 2 (H740) Now Available

South Korea s LG Electronics recently launched its latest premium smartphone, the LG G51, in many markets around the world, after having unveiled it originally at the Mobile World Congress trade show earlier this year in Barcelona, Spain. However, even as the company is busy launching new handsets, some of its older smartphones have been getting major software updates over the past several weeks, including the G42 and the G3, both of which have already received Android Marshmallow in many regions worldwide. As for the LG G5, it comes with Android 6.0.1 pre-installed, so it isn t scheduled to receive a major version update till Google releases the full stable version of Android N to its OEM partners later this year. However, it s not just high-end flagships that have been getting the Marshmallow treatment from the South Korean manufacturer of late. The company recently released its Marshmallow-based update for a mid-ranger on T-Mobile called the G Stylo and it now looks as if another of the company s mid-range offerings may be about to get Android 6.0, this time at AT&T. According to a post on its official website by the second-largest wireless carrier in the US, Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the LG G Vista 2 (H740) is now rolling out to users across the country via FOTA (Firmware Over the Air). While neither AT&T nor LG have released any changelog for the update, AT&T does mention that the latest software will come with a file size of 892 MB and will be available to download over Wi-Fi.

The device was on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop prior to this update. Those using the G Vista 2 on AT&T should receive their notification pretty soon if they haven t already. The availability of the update can also be checked for manually, by going over to the Settings menu and then choosing the General tab. Users will then need to choose About Phone , before tapping on Update Center . Going into the Software Update section subsequently should provide the Update Now option.

Meanwhile, AT&T urges users to back up their media files on an external storage device, although it insists that the update should not result in any loss of data.
