Will LG Stylo 6 get an Android 11 update? Today this question is even more relevant as it’s in the news that LG will stop making phones altogether in the coming months.
There are at least 10 different variants of LG Stylo 6 based on the different carriers.
The different Stylo 6 models are Boost Mobile lm-q730tm3, MetroPCS lmq730mm, Cricket Q730am, T-Mobile q730tmw, US Cellular q730qm0, Verizon q730vmw, Xfinity Mobile q730qm5, Spectrum q730qm6, Sprint q730tm3 & Factory Unlocked q730qm7.
They all were launched with Android 10 out of the box and are awaiting the Android 11 update.
In this post, we are going to update the Stylo 6 android version by installing the latest available software and also going to check the Android 11 update status. So let’s get going –
LG Stylo 6 Android Version
To check the current Stylo 6 android software version, open the Settings app and select “System”.
Now, go to “About Phone” > “Software Info”.
The current Android version is 10 and the Software version is Q730MM10q with Android Security Patch level January 2021.

LG Stylo 6 Latest Software Update March 2021
Now, let’s install the latest available Software on our Stylo 6.
For this, we need to go to the update center.
Open the Settings app and go to the “System” page.
Now, go to “Update Center” > “System Update”.
A Security Update is available.
After downloading the update we need to restart the phone. Tap “Restart now” to install this update.
The system update is installed and the phone has rebooted.
Now, it’s finishing the system update.
Now, we are going to check if another update is available or this is the latest update.
Once again go to Settings > System.
Now, Go to “Update Center” and open “System Update”.
The update center shows “The System is up to date”. It’s the March 2021 Security Update with Software version Q730 MM10r
Will LG Stylo 6 get Android 11 Update?
LG is quite notorious in terms of offering software updates. My Stylo 4 MetroPCS is still running on Android 8. Even the entry-level Aristo 3 is updated to Android 9.
As far as LG smartphones are concerned, as of today, only LG Velvet is updated to Android 11. The Android 11 update is in the pipeline for other high-end LG devices such as V60, Gx8 Thinq & even the newest Wing.
So, we shouldn’t keep our hopes very high for Stylo 6. It came with Android 10 out of the box. Looking at the Software update history of popular LG phones, we can expect at least one major update from Stylo 6.
However, this dream can come true only if LG remains in the smartphone industry. LG’s cellphone division is making a loss for the past few years. The rumors are going on that LG will stop making phones altogether. Most probably we are going to hear an official update from LG on Monday, April 5, 2021, in this regard.
If LG quits then the Stylo 7 is out of the question and the Stylo 6 Android 11 update looks like a far distant dream.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
LG Stylo 6 Automatic System Updates
To keep your Stylo 6 software updated all the time, you can enable the automatic system update settings in the “Developer Options”.

Now, Go to the “Developer Options” page and turn on “Automatic system updates” as shown above.
This way, the OTA system update is downloaded over Wifi & installs automatically when you restart your phone.
