LG has definitely made a name for itself in the phone crafting industry and is now one of the companies that can manufacture notable devices and delivers major operating system updates fast. The recent release of Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat is indeed exciting news, especially for those tech fans who have been waiting for it to come. The most eligible phone brand to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update first is Nexus, and now there are other brands in the running for it as well.


The LG G5 will be one of the first smartphones aside from the Nexus phones to get the Android 7.0 Nougat. This is based on and confirmed by Optus, they are also expected to release the update by mid-November. The LG G5 we are talking about is a carrier branded G5, therefore the unlocked version of the phone may get the Android 7.0 Nougat earlier than the locked one. Take note that there is no confirmation about this part as of yet.

Fans will be glad to know that the Android 7.0 Nougat update is already being testing for the G5 at Optus. The carrier from Australia does not carry any other device that will be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update. Although that has been said, it does not necessarily imply that the other devices like Samsung Galaxy S7 or the HTC 10 will not be getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update, which is not the case. Optus just does not have any testing of the Android 7.0 Nougat update undergoing at the moment for any other device aside from the LG G5.
