The update speed of LG devices for the Android Marshmallow update has been impressive. In fact, it only needed 2 months to separate the release of Android 6 and the first LG handset to get it. Take note that LG is second only to Google in terms of being the first OEM to acquire a Marshmallow update that is carrier-based.
If you can recall, the LG V10 went on to get the update in March 2016 internationally, after the LG G Stylo and LG G3 got the Marshmallow in the United States. Therefore, if this holds true for Android 7 Nougat, the first LG device to update will be the LG G5 to happen in December 2016. So, the first phone to get Nougat out of the box will be LG V20 even on top of the next generation of Nexus devices.
