Since the beginning of the year, owners of LG’s G4 and V10 models look forward to launching Android Nougat. In March, LG announced what news would be present in updating the system for these devices, without revealing when such an update would be released.
The V10 began to be updated in South Korea in May, bringing the Android Nougat with some news from LG. After months, LG finally begins releasing the update for the G4 in South Korea, specifically for the F500K, F500L and F500S variants.
Update arrives with the 30C firmware for the F500K and 30B for the F500L model. The KDZ file is available for download at the source, where you can install it manually if you have the Korean version of G4.
Unfortunately, it has not been specified which countries will receive the news within this time frame. In this way, some nations may end up waiting a little longer, since LG tends to leave those market last when it comes to Android updates.
What’s new in LG’s Nougat?
- New notifications: they arrive all the time, and sometimes they become a nuisance. Android 7 lets you manage them in a more specific way, with a chance to block them, write immediate answers, group them, and more.
- Multi-Window: You can use two applications at a time by viewing each one in half the screen. Comfortable, for example, to take notes during a call or write a text message while watching a video.
- Data Saver: Limits your smartphone’s data consumption. When enabled, the application running in the background can not access the data network.
- Blocking numbers: If you do not want to receive calls or messages a number with Android 7 can be blocked so as not to be disturbed.
- Custom Size: You can change not only the size of the text, but also the appearance of the icons and items on the screen.
Looking forward to Nougat on your LG G4? Let’s hope the update does not take long to reach.
