This week, T-Mobile apparently becomes the first US carrier to provide the Android Nougat firmware update to an LG tablet. The tablet in question is the LG G Pad X 8.0 V521, a slate that was released back in June when it arrived loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The update is dated January 2 and carries the build number V52120f. One user confirmed that the update is available via LG Bridge, while LG and T-Mobile mentioned that Android 7.0 Nougat would hit these slates via FOTA "in a few days." The previous update was released on October 24 and carries the build number V52110e.
Since this is the first Nougat update for the LG G Pad X 8.0, the slate should get all the new features everyone should be familiar with already - multi-window mode, improved Doze mode, a lot of new emojis, direct replies to notifications, enhanced VR support, as well as the usual tweaks, fixes, and security patches.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
