Verizon LG G2 getting a small maintenance update

lg-g2Good news awaits Verizon LG G2 owners as the carrier is preparing to rollout a small firmware update (VS98012B) to the smartphone with bug fixes and some other improvements. This is not a full blown Android update, so the Android version will remain unchanged. But that’s immaterial as Verizon is bringing some much needed improvements with the update. However, Verizon is also bundling its usual set of bloatware apps, which is expected. There’s no specific mention of a rollout date, but we’re expecting the update to go live before New Year’s. Here’s the full update changelog accessed from Verizon:

  • Video playback quality has been improved when viewing on websites.
  • Dialing 611 will now appear on device screen.
  • TalkBack reds each deleted letter when using Messaging Keyboard.
  • Backup Assistant Plus resumes syncing after completing a voice call.
  • Device lockups have been reduced.
  • Viewdini application has been removed.
  • Verizon Cloud app is now preloaded.
  • Messaging is now supported via QSlide.
  • Voice quality has been improved.
  • Google Security Patch has been added.

Most of these changes are Verizon specific and apply to the apps you use regularly, so it’s quite a big update. Expect a notification to pop up anytime now.
