Google released the Android 7.0 Nougat update late last year and it still hasn’t arrived on quite a few compatible handsets. That’s what fragmentation gets you on the Android platform. Nevertheless, LG V10 owners have something to look forward to now with regards to a software update. LG has finally started rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the LG V10.
The only caveat here is that this update is being rolled out in LG’s home market of South Korea at this point in time. However, since it’s out there, it’s only a matter of time before LG releases it in other markets across the globe.
Those who own carrier-locked versions of the LG V10 will have to wait even more as carriers tend to hold up updates for a few weeks. They do that to make their own little changes, add bloatware, and conduct tests on the firmware before they roll it out to users on their network.
Software version v30d is now being rolled out for the LG V10 in South Korea. The hefty update brings Android 7.0 Nougat and LG UX 5.0+. It’s out now for F600L, F600K, and F600S carrier variants in South Korea and can be downloaded from LG Bridge PC software.
