Verizon Wireless has offered up the specifics for an upcoming software update for the LG Spectrum. This update will arrive as software update VS920V6 and bring the handset up to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Basically, no Ice Cream Sandwich just yet. That aside though, the update does look to contain a decent mix of improvements and enhancements.
According to details provided by Verizon, the update will measure in at 127MB in size and could take upwards of 10 to 140 minutes to download and then another 8 to 10 minutes to install. More specifically, the average download times are 16 minutes on 4G LTE, 29 minutes on EVDO or 145 minutes on 1XRTT.
Those with an LG Spectrum can either sit back and wait for the update notification to arrive on their handset and then upgrade from that point or take the pro-active approach and navigate to Menu -> Settings -> About phone -> Software updates -> Check for Updates.
