LG has launched its latest flagship LG G6, at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona this year and its V20 smartphone has created quite a roar as well. While LG G6 has a lot of ‘first ever’ on board, V20 has been one of the trendsetter device by the company. However, with the new beefed up variants already in place, company still has support on their predecessor.
LG will update two of its smartphone models – G4 and V10. The South Korean electronic giant is said to soon roll out latest operating system update for both the phones. This means a OS update based on Android Nougat 7.0 is likely for the V10 and G4. According to Yonhap news agency report, G4 is expected to get Android Nougat OS update in the second half of this year, G4 could get it in the third quarter.
However, this scheduled update applies the two LG smartphones sold in South Korea. LG G4 and LG V10 global customers would be notified of a separate roll out later.
