LG has been supporting Android for a long time, and now they plan to become the first company to ship a handset with Nougat by the end of Q3.

Not long after releasing the LG G5 as the world's first modular flagship to hit the market, the company might soon become the first one to offer a flagship that retails loaded with Android Nougat as well. However, this still needs to happen before calling it a fact. For now, it appears to be only a rumor that should be taken with a grain of salt.

"LG’s still keeping plenty under wraps about the device, which is set to ship in Q3. We do know that the phone will be the official successor to the V10," writes TechCrunch. Unfortunately, the company continues to talk about the new features that Google Android 7.0 Nougat promises to bring, such as Vulkan-supported graphics, improved battery life, as well as some productivity features. Regarding the successor of the attractive LG V10 premium handset, they did not mention any technical specs for now.

LG introduced its first Android-powered handset back in 2009 when the slider-design LG GW620 arrived carrying a QWERTY keyboard and Android 1.5 Cupcake.

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.
