LG has begun pushing the Android 7.0 Nougat update to LG G5 handsets, starting with models in Korea. The manufacturer announced Monday, the updates will begin in its home market and soon make its way to other markets, including the U.S.
The LG G5 has been available since April and has intrigued consumers with its modular design. The smartphone launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and its LG’s first smartphone to update to Android 7.0 Nougat.
Other devices in LG’s expected to update to Android Nougat in the coming months include the LG V10 and the LG G3. The LG V10 is expected to receive Android 7.0 around mid-February. However, the LG G3’s update cycle still remains a rumor.
Meanwhile, the LG V20, which went on sale in late October, was one of the first non-Google smartphones to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
Several other manufacturers are beginning or preparing for their Android 7.0 rollout. Motorola commenced the Nougat update cycle when it began sending the new software to the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus in October. HTC has also announced plans to soon begin updating devices, including the HTC 10, the HTC one A9 and the HTC One M9. Samsung will begin an Android 7.0 Nougat beta test program for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in the U.K. as of Wednesday.
