South Korean owners of the modular flagship are the first ones to receive Android 7.0 as an over-the-air update, with other areas - including the Americas - expected to follow "in the weeks to come," according to LG.

LG G5 arrived back in April and remained one of the few modular flagships currently available on the market. However, while the LG V20 became the first handset to launch loaded with Android Nougat earlier this fall, LG G5 owners had to wait until now to get the update. Unfortunately, those not located in South Korea still have to wait for a few weeks until Android Nougat for LG G5 becomes available in their areas as well.

According to LG, the company "today began rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat OS for the LG G5 in LG’s home market of South Korea." The set of new features offered by the new software includes multi-window capabilities, more personalized settings and smarter notifications, searches that can be performed both inside user-installed apps and built-in ones via In Apps.

While LG G5 users in South Korea have already begun to receive the update notification, information on the arrival of the update on other areas should become available locally in the coming weeks.

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.
