While the G6 is freshly announced and launching here soon in Australia, the older LG phones, specifically the LG G4 and V10 are about to get a taste of the latest with LG announcing the phones will be getting a Nougat update this year.
The announcement from LG has advised that though the V10 and G4 were designed for Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), they’ve decided to update the phones to Android 7.0 (Nougat) as well. The updates will be rolled out later this year starting with the V10 in Q2 this year, followed by the G4 in Q3. LG quarters are in line with the calendar year, so expect an update for the V10 starting from April through to June, while the G4 should expect its update to start between June and August.
The V10 never officially made it to Australia, so there’s not a lot of owners here. The G4 however was launched here, but was notorious for bootlooping, so if your phone has survived thus far, then it and the V10 will be getting a tasty treat later this year.
