T-Mobile’s LG G5 gets Android 7.0 Nougat

Android 7.0 Nougat is now rolling out to LG G5 handsets connected to T-Mobile. The update weighs in at 1.2GB and includes Google’s security patch for November, plus a whole host of new features and improvements — including split-screen multitasking.

LG first started its Nougat rollout for the G5 on November 8, so T-Mobile customers have only waited three weeks for its approval. As you’d expect from an Android 7.0 upgrade, this release includes features like split-screen multitasking and customizable Quick Settings.

It also brings improvements to Doze for better battery life, and the Vulkan API for greater gaming experiences. LG has also enhanced its user interface, porting over some of the changes and improvements it made for the new V20.

It might take a little while for this update to reach all G5 handsets on T-Mobile since big release like this one tend to rollout in phases. However, you’ll get a notification once the update is available to download to your device over-the-air.

To search for updates manually, open up the Settings app and head into the Software Update section under About Device.
