T-Mobile LG G5 receiving its Android 7.0 Nougat update


One of the highlight features of the LG V20 is that it launched with Android 7.0 in tow, making it one of the first smartphones to launch with Nougat in tow. Now the V20’s sibling is getting a taste of Nougat, too.

The LG G5 is now receiving its Android 7.0 update on T-Mobile. While T-Mo hasn’t officially updated its G5 support page with info on the update, several owners are reporting that they’ve received the Nougat update.

Unsurprisingly, the update is a biggie, weighing in at 1272.9MB. In addition to bumping the LG G5 to Nougat and all of its goodies, the update also includes the November 1, 2016 Android security patch.


Because the G5 is one of LG’s flagships for 2016, it’s long been a question of when, not if, it’d be updated to Android 7.0. Now that update is rolling out on T-Mobile, and it’s being pushed to the LG G5 before most other Android phones, which makes this update even more exciting for G5 owners.

If you’ve got an LG G5 and you haven’t yet gotten your update, you can check for it manually by going into Settings > General > About phone > Update center > System update > Check for update.
