Canadian carrier Fido is apparently the first one to release this update to these 8-inch Android slates that arrived back in May 2016, carrying Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board.

LG G Pad III 8.0 has been around since last May and now this premium tablet finally begins to receive Android 7.0 Nougat for some of its North American users. While there are still US-based LG G Pad III 8.0 who did not receive the new firmware yet, the Canadian ones on Fido have begun to get it already.

The new firmware brings the usual Nougat goodies, such as improved Doze mode, direct reply from notifications, multi-window support, customizable quick settings, as well as increased battery life overall, the latest security patches, and the usual bug fixes and minor optimizations.

The LG G Pad III 8.0 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC with Qualcomm Adreno 405 graphics, next to 2 GB RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, and microSD support up to 256 GB. This 8-inch slate has a 1,9200X1,200-pixel multitouch IPS display, featuring optional 4G LTE connectivity and being powered by a 4,800 mAh battery.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
