When it comes to Android, it looks like Android N (also known as Android 7.0 and Nougat) is going to be coming very soon to the company known as LG, who did a pretty good job getting Android M (otherwise known as Android 6.0 or Marshmallow) to its current subscribers.  This is what is known about the latest news of Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow and Android Nougat Release Dates for LG G5, G4, G3, G2, G Stylo, and V10 on Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T.
LG G5 could be out next year

When it comes to Android, it looks like Android N (also known as Android 7.0 and Nougat) is going to be coming very soon to the company known as LG, who did a pretty good job getting Android M (otherwise known as Android 6.0 or Marshmallow) to its current subscribers.  This is what is known about the latest news of Android M Version 6.0 Marshmallow and Android Nougat Release Dates for LG G5, G4, G3, G2, G Stylo, and V10 on Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T. 

As for any updates with the LG, there hasn't really been any update for this week.  It is already established that the LG G5 came with the Marshmallow from out of the box.  Then, there is the LG G4, which has been essentially taken care of for all of the carriers.  Also, the LG G3 has received its upgrade, and the LG V10 has its upgrade Internationally as well as Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T. 

It looks like other LG smartphones like the LG Magna, the LG Spiriit, as well as the LG G Flex 2 will be getting the upgrade.  Any LG devices that are the G2 and lower will not be receiving that upgrade, but be stuck in permanent Lollipop mode. 

The best advice one can give is if you have a newer LG Android device, it would be worth your while to check the "Settings" menu along with the "System Update" to see if the upgrade is available via Over The Air (OTA).  It looks like things are progressing very well for LG, and it shouldn't take long before all of the newer devices have Android M on all carriers, assuming that it isn't already. 

As far as the release date of Android Nougat for LG, it would make sense that it would be coming soon on newer LG devices.  The company went out of its way last year to say that they were going to be the first manufacturer of Android devices to upgrade to Marshmallow.  Of course, Google and their new Nexus devices will be the first to receive it, but that won't be coming until September at the earliest.  If not in the fall of 2016, then it will be in 2017. 

It will probably have to go through a whole gamut of "soak tests" in countries that aren't America, but what can you say.  Chances are, the LG G5 will probably have Android Nougat before the year is out.  Then Nougat will go to all other, older LG phones.
