LG G5 is metal clad with modular design and dual cameras.

Android 7.0 Nougat will be introduced soon to popular Smartphones devices. Among the first few Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who would be able to introduce it to the device is LG. Early in November, the LG G5 might get the firmware. 

LG, the South Korean technology giant was among the first to connect a device running Google's latest operating system Android 7.0 Nougat with V20. It is expected that in the middle of next month, it will release the firmware update to LG G5. But LG has not yet disclosed the schedule for updating its devices with Android 7.0 Nougat.

Even if it does, according to xda-developers, "this timeline should not be treated as a date that is set in stone. It's currently in the testing phase and there could be many roadblocks in its path. With it being in testing right now, Optus could find something wrong with the update, a connectivity issue for instance, and that will cause a delay in the roll out."

Already Google has made the Android 7.0 Nougat update to Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C and Android One.

LG G3 ran Android 4.4.2 KitKat and later updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It was running Android 7.0 Nougat on Geekbench benchmark test. 

Even though the number or names of handsets that will be updated with the new firmware has not been announced, it is reported by many that the OS will be rolled out to LG G5, G4, V10, X Cam, X Screen, X Power, X Max, X Mach, X Style, LG G4 Stylus, K10, K8 and K7.

What are the additional features of the OS? They are quite interesting and myriad and make the users wait eagerly for the updates. They include "multi-window, direct reply notifications, extra power efficiency, Google Assistant, VR interface, seamless updates, screen zoom, clear all, data saver, improved file browser, instant apps, app switch, bundled notifications, improved Java 8 language support, and new emojis."
