With a brief press release, LG has confirmed the update to Android 7.0 Nougat for the LG V10 and LG G4 (news not too unexpected, although at first unexpected), which has put an end to rumors in recent months to this respect. Thus, although fragmentation remains the main Achilles heel of the world's most popular mobile operating system, at least there are manufacturers who insist on providing updated Android to its users.
The Korean company has confirmed the arrival of the official updates that will bring Android 7.0 Nougat to the LG V10 and LG G4, two smartphones launched in 2015 and that are still supported two years later (a achievement, seen today). The launch will also affect Europe, although the deployment time has not yet been defined. We can speak, however, of a generic in the middle of the year. That is, in the period between July and December. In this way, users can have, in addition to the latest features introduced by the operating system, also all changes related to the resolution of the vulnerabilities found.
In short, and taking into account the delay and that both still are not the latest devices in the market to receive this version, both smartphones will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat and this can not but please all its owners and those who value these policies when buying the device of a particular brand. The upgrade, according to LG, will be released through OTA during the second half of the year and never before the third quarter. This is really a good gift from LG, given the year of its launch.
LG V10 and LG G4 | Specifications
The LG V10 stood out by the introduction of a very small second screen above the main, useful for viewing notifications and for quick access to the user's favorite features. The LG G4, however, is a smartphone with only a 5.5-inch screen and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, which stands out in some of the editions sold for the presence of leather on the back of the device.
