LG has officially begun to push the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the users of G5. As of now, only the South Korean model of the smartphone is receiving the newest Android version. With this, the company claims to be the first to deliver the Nougat update to a Marshmallow running device. LG V20 was also the very first handset to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, even before Google’s very own Pixel and Pixel XL.
With the Nougat update already available for the South Korean variant of the LG G5, we can assume that other countries shall follow soon. In fact, LG has officially mentioned in its press release that American, Asian and other countries will receive the update within a few weeks. The official roll out implies that there is no technical glitch in the implementation of the new Android version in LG’s modular smartphone.
The LG G5 is the company’s flagship handset. It is one of the first devices to rock a modular get-up. The smartphone comes with a Quad HD 5.3-inch Gorilla Glass 4 covered display, Snapdragon 820, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, dual rear camera (16 MP + 8 MP), 8 MP front camera, and USB Type-C port. It has a removable 2800mAh battery and an inventive, smart slot for modular additions.
The Android 7.0 Nougat will bring some new features and improvements for better user experience. A few of the goodies include an innovative In-App search facility to perform searches even inside third party applications. Another notable addition is the native multi-window support of Nougat.
