T-Mobile will make happy its subscribers who own a LG G5 flagship, as their wait for the Android 7.0 Nougat update is over. The firmware which weighs in at 1.27GB includes not only the new features introduced by Google, but also security updates. Besides the LG G5, other smartphones running on Nougat are: Motorola Moto Z Force DROID and HTC 10, while the Galaxy S7/7 Edge run a beta version of the update.
Android 7.0 Nougat comes with the Split-screen view, which allows you to run two different applications at the same time; seamless updates, which are downloaded in the background, then the user is prompted to reboot the device in order to finish the installation process; Doze on the Go, which allows the device to go into incredibly low power usage modes when the screen has been off for a certain period of time, even if it’s not stationary; new emoji thanks to Unicode 9; and Google Assistant has become more “talkative”.
In order to install the Android 7.0 Nougat update, which also includes the Android Security update, LG G5 users connected to T-Mobile must make sure that the battery is fully charged and that the wireless network is working, because the installation file is very large (1.27GB) and it’s recommendable to use cellular data to download it. After the update finishes downloading, users will select Restart & Install option from the bottom of the screen, then they will wait until the installation process completes.
The LG G5 was released in April with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. It has an IPS LCD screen with a size of 5.3-inch, which supports a QHD resolution, it’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor running at 2.15GHz and it supports 4GB of RAM. The internal memory is expandable from 32GB to 256GB using a microSD card, while the battery is removable and has a capacity of 2800mAh. Also, on the rear side, you’ll find a Dual 16 MP + 8 MP camera and the front camera is 8 MP.
