Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat update is expected to hit the market soon, with Nexus devices first in line to receive the software. Nonetheless, as Google emphasized previously, it will be pushing manufacturers and carriers to carry out Android updates faster than before. It looks like the pressure may just work, as reports of the LG G5 receiving the Android Nougat update have surfaced.
It appears that smartphone manufacturers are trying to release the Android Nougat update as soon as possible. According to Android Headlines, a few days ago, Sony has reportedly begun accepting sign-ups for testing Android 7.0 Nougat specifically for its Xperia X Performance line. This time, LG was also seen rolling out a beta version of Android 7.0 Nougat to LG G5.
