As promised, LG starts rolling out official Android 7.0 Nougat update to its flagship device LG G5 in South Korea. America, Asia and other parts of the world will get the update in the coming weeks. LG G5 users will receive the OTA (over-the-air) notifications for the Android 7.0 Nougat update on their phones once it starts. However, since the OTA update is rolled out in phases, it will take few days to get the update on all G5 devices.
LG G5 is one of the first non-Google devices to get official Android 7.0 Nougat update. Senior VP and head of LG Mobile’s R&D Kim Hyung-jung said, “At LG, we know our customers want the best, most up-to-date mobile experience. 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.”
Android 7.0 Nougat brings many new features to LG G5, which will enhance user experience. Search inside an app (In Apps feature), run two apps side by side or switch between them with a double tap, more personalized settings, smarter notifications, etc. will enhance user experience.
LG G5 users can also enjoy a more improved battery optimization (Doze on the move), enhanced security update, Data saver, bundled notifications, new emojis, touch responsiveness, etc. with the Nougat update.
If you have received the OTA notification message for this update, just download and install the update. If you have not received an OTA for this update, follow the steps below to manually check of the OTA update.
1. Go to Settings > About phone > System updates
2. If update found, select “Yes, I’m in”. After the software is downloaded, select “Install now”

Note that, as the OTA update is rolled out in phases it will take one or two weeks to get the update on your device. (Source – LG newsroom)
