This 5.7-inch handset that launched almost a year ago now finally surfaces on Geekbench running Android 7.0, so the update should arrive soon, especially since T-Mobile released it and then stopped the rollout, probably due to a last-minute issue.

LG Stylo 2 Plus arrived last summer powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, next to 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage and 2 GB or 3 GB RAM. The K530 model had 2 GB of memory and arrived with Marshmallow out of the box. Now, it has just been spotted with Android Nougat on board.

So far, so good, but T-Mobile recently updated its website to show that the Nougat update for the Stylo 2 Plus units on its network is ready to hit the market. Unfortunately, all references to this new firmware have been removed since then. However, the K530 model has been designed for the South American market, and it would not be a big surprise to see it receive the update ahead of its siblings.

The LG-K530 handset that surfaced on Geekbench has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and uses 2 GB of memory, but there is not much else to say about it. When running Geekbench 4.0.4 on Android 7.0 Nougat, it scored 581 single-core points and reached 2,027 multi-core points.

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.
