Android 7.0 Nougat Now on Sprint’s LG G5 Smartphones, More Phones Getting it Soon

Sprint LG G5 now on Android 7.0 Nougat with November 1 security patch

Google’s Android OEM partners are now hopping on board the Android 7.0 Nougat bandwagon one after the other. We’ve just heard that Sprint has approved the update and is already rolling it out to users of LG G5 as an OTA (over-the-air) update.

Android 7.0 Nougat was already announced for several smartphone models earlier this month – five models of Samsung’s Galaxy range and the Galaxy Tab S2, as well as Moto Z Droid variants on Verizon. LG first brought in the new OS version with its V20 phablet, so this will be the second phone in LG’s smartphone lineup that’s going the Nougat way.

Other makers in the process of boarding the Android 7.0 Nougat freight train are Sony’s Xperia range, Moto, HTC and OnePlus. Here’s a full list of phones that have either gotten their Nougat updates or are waiting in line for it.

The update is fairly heavy at 1.27GB, so be sure you’re on WiFi when initiating the update. We’re not going to cover the Nougat’s features because that’s kind of been overdone already. But one point to note is that the update for LG G5 will come with the November 1 security patch, so those fixes will be on the Android 7.0 Nougat that you’ll be getting on.

We’re keeping tabs on which phones get Nougat over the coming months, so stay tuned.
