Sprint LG G5 gets its Android Nougat update


Just two weeks after the Korean LG G5 received its Android 7.0 Nougat update, it's now time for a US variant of the handset to get rid of Marshmallow. Specifically, we're talking about Sprint's LG G5. While the Nougat update doesn't show up on Sprint's support web page yet, select users are receiving it as of yesterday, complete with Google's November security patch.

With Android Nougat, G5 owners are getting pretty much the same interface that's available on the LG V20 - the world's first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box (released by Sprint in October). Notable new features include a split-screen mode, revamped quick settings and notifications shade, and enhanced Doze mode. You can check out some screenshots - revealed by a Reddit user - below.

We assume that the Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile variants of the LG G5 will be updated to Android Nougat pretty soon, too. The same goes for the unlocked model - which, by the way, currently costs just $400.
