LG G6 on T-Mobile Receiving the December ’17 Android Security Update Patch

Owners of the LG G6 on T-Mobile should be seeing an update over the course of the next few days on the device.  The update is build H87211g for those keeping score at home.  According to the release notes, it was published on January 9th.

The release notes only indicated that the update brings Software stability and bug fixes so it is pretty generic on what, if anything, was addressed beyond the updating of the Android Security Update patch.  Still, users are encouraged to download the update and get it installed if for only the security patch update.

One thing that is clear in the release notes however is that this is not an Android Oreo update for the LG G6.  The build remains Nougat 7.0 for the time being.  Currently LG is in the process of beta testing their Oreo build in Asia with an anticipated release next month.  It could be a month or two longer before carrier locked devices get the update globally.

If you have the G6 on T-Mobile, you can check for updates in Settings.  You’ll need to download the update, which is about 650MB, via WiFi and you’ll need to reboot after it is installed for it to take effect.
