LG V10 Starts Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat Update, Beginning With Select Users
  • LG V10 was launched in October 2015
  • It was confirmed to receive the update in H2 2017
  • However, the update has started trickling in for South Korea users

Earlier in the year, LG had confirmed that it would roll out Android 7.0 Nougat update to LG G4 and LG V10 users as well. The update was to arrive in the second half of the year, but LG is a little ahead of schedule this time around. The company has announced that it is rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for select LG V10 users in South Korea, however users in most other countries will get it from June onwards.

For now, LG is rolling out the update to South Korea users only. If you live in South Korea and own a V10, you can download it through LG Bridge desktop software right away. For other markets, LG confirmed that the update will arrive starting June.

Previously, LG had announced plans to discontinue updates, saying the phones are not optimised for the latest versions of Android, however Nougat updates are incoming, scheduled for the LG G4 sometime in the third quarter. The Android 7.0 Nougat update brings multi-window features, wider notification window, new language settings, app data storage location settings, and much more.

Just to recap, the LG V10 was launched in October 2015, and the smartphone's big highlights were the secondary Always on Display and the dual front camera setup. The smartphone came with two separate lenses that can capture standard 80-degree selfies or wide-angle selfies of up to 120 degrees. The LG V10 also offers video recording in three resolutions - HD, FHD, or UHD alongside two aspect ratios - 16:9 standard or 21:9 cinematic.
