LG has started rolling out
Android 7.0 Nougat OS for the LG G5 in South
LG, which was the first smartphone manufacturer to offer a
Nougat experience out of the box with its LG V20 for content
creators, has the distinction of being the first company after
Google to offer Nougat as an upgrade to an existing smartphone
running Android Marshmallow.
While LG G5 owners in
Korea are the first to receive the OS upgrade, they will be
followed by customers in the Americas, Asia and other markets in
the weeks to come.
Most G5 users will receive notifications
on their phones when the update is available.
Android 7.0 Nougat offers a range of new features designed to
enhance the user experience and deliver more speed and convenience
to G5 owners.
For example, searches can now be conducted inside
user-installed apps as well as built-in apps using Nougat’s In
Apps. New Multi-window allows the user to switch between apps with
a double tap or run two apps side by side. More personalized
settings and smarter notifications allow users to be more
productive with less effort.
“At LG, we know our
customers want the best, most up-to-date mobile experience,” said
Kim Hyung-jung, senior vice president and head of LG Mobile’s
research and development. “Getting software updates to our users
faster than the competition is our way of demonstrating that LG is
committed to supporting our products and customers to ensure they
have a positive ownership experience.”
