Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat has been downloadable for a couple of weeks now and while some Android smartphones and tablets are still running on earlier versions of the operating system, LG just announced that Optus LG G5 is now eligible for the latest version of Android.
According to Android Headlines, most Android users are still unable to update their mobile devices and will have to wait for a couple of weeks more to get the latest version. This may be the case for some but one major Android OEM is reportedly all set to update one of its smartphones to Android Nougat very soon, the Optus LG G5.
The LG G5, which was launched earlier this year by the South Korean consumer electronics company, will get the Android 7.0 Nougat by mid-November.
Australian carrier, Optus, confirmed the reports and has also stated that the LG G5 is the only device on its lineup to receive Android 7.0 in the following weeks.
In a report posted by Android Community, Android 7.0 for the LG G5 is currently being tested in Australia. For now, it will be the first of the few LG smartphones that has the capacity to upgrade into Android 7.0 but more will be added soon, although no confirmation yet from the producers.
Owners of Optus LG G5 can expect the updated version of Android in the coming weeks but for now are advised to wait for the official over-the-air (OTA) notifications as to when they can finally install Android 7.0 Nougat.
Aside from LG G5, reports also confirmed that LG V20, LG V10 and LG G3 are also getting the latest version of Android.
