After a long wait, LG has finally confirmed that its duo 2015-flagship smartphones, the V10 and G4, will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat in the near future. As you know, LG was one of the first Android OEMs to release the Android Nougat update for its flagship smartphone last year- the update for the G5 in November. Another 2016 flagship, the V20, was the first smartphone to taste the Android 7.0 Nougat as soon as out of the box. But it’s pity as the 2015 LG flagships haven’t got the same priority yet.
According to LG, the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the G4 will begin releasing in the second quarter of this year, which means the update could arrive anywhere from April to June. While LG V10 owners will have to wait longer to receive the Nougat update. LG will be releasing the Android 7.0 update for the V10 users in the third quarter of this year, which means the update will arrive between July and September. But you should note that the timeframe confirmed by LG is only applied to the Korean market. Global variants of the G4 and V10 will just get the update a few weeks after the update is released in South Korea. The LG G5 is an example as you know that the global rollout began came a few weeks after the rollout first in South Korea, so the G4 and V10, we expect the global rollout to be a little slower as well. But great news is that LG has promised sharing the rollout time frame for international variants in the near future.

Similar to the LG G5, we hope the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the G4 and V10 will be added all the various features that Nougat comes with. Besides the key Nougat features, LG will definitely update the UI design as well, though, there is not any new features from the UX 6.0 layout made available to the V10 and G4.
