LG’s V20 is the first non-Google device with Android 7.0 Nougat


Aside from announcing the release of Android 7.0 Nougat, Google revealed something about LG’s next phone. The LG V20 will be the world’s first non-Google device to ship with Nougat already present.

Here’s what Sameer Samat, Android’s VP of Product Management, said:

“And there are many tasty devices coming from our partners running Android Nougat, including the upcoming LG V20 which will be the first new smartphone that ships with Android Nougat, right out of the box.”

There it is. LG will be ahead of Samsung, HTC, Lenovo, and the rest of the competition in having a Nougat-flavored phone on the market. The other companies will be updating their devices to Nougat, but we all know that’s not going to be for weeks or months. LG gets to proudly proclaim dominance in having the V20 running the latest version of Android by the time it launches in September with high expectations.

Wait, don’t stop reading just yet! Google also showed what LG’s software will look like on the V20 with Nougat.


Alright, so the image isn’t very telling. It actually appears that the software is identical to what’s on the LG G5. Just use your imagination, though, think about what’s on the inside of the phone. LG is going to pair high-end specifications of the V20 with the abundance of new features Google is offering in Android 7.0 Nougat.

We’ll know exactly what the LG V20 looks like when the phone is announced on September 6 in San Francisco.
