Not long after the LG V20 launched as the first new handset to come with Android Nougat on board, LG launches the first Android 7.0 firmware update for one of its tablets, namely the G Pad X 8.0 V521.

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.

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.
