Even though it has been a couple of months since Google released Android 7.0 Nougat its OEM partners are yet to send the update out, at least for their flagship smartphones. It goes without saying that some of the company’s biggest partners are getting Nougat ready for their devices. LG is one of them. If a new report is believed, the LG G5 is going to receive the Nougat update by mid-November.
LG has been running a preview program for this update. It offered G5 owners in South Korea the opportunity to take a part in the program so that they can put the latest and great Android update through its paces. We’ve yet to see the company launch a similar preview program for users in other markets across the globe.
Australian carrier Optus has refreshed its Android Software Updates page to reflect that Nougat is currently being tested for the LG G5 and that it’s going to be released by mid-November. It’s unclear whether the update will be out everywhere else first before it’s officially released in Australia.
Since there’s no official confirmation on any of this from the company, G5 owners shouldn’t really get their hopes up too much until something is made official. LG will soon start selling a new smartphone that ships with Android 7.0 Nougat, the LG V20 arrives October 28th.
