Android 7.0 Nougat comes to T-Mobile's LG G5
It was just a couple of days ago that we brought you word on how Sprint's LG G5 started to receive the Android 7.0 Nougat update, and here we are with the latest information that T-Mobile subscribers who are rocking to the dual camera LG G5 too, are able to enjoy some Android 7.0 Nougat goodness on their handsets as per Reddit user.

HTC 10 and Android 7.0 Nougat
First introducing the Android 7.0 Nougat update for HTC 10 owners last Friday, this could also be the same ROM that might be found on the HTC 10 evo, which is the HTC Bolt's international model. Do take note that this update is available only for unlcoked devices. So far, the international availability of the Android 7.0 Nougat update for HTC 10 owners have not been mentioned or revealed, but the Taiwanese firm did promise in the past that they intend to roll out the most recent mobile operating system version within 90 days of its availability. Fingers crossed that they keep to their word this time around too!

Do take note that the Android 7.0 Nougat update will weigh in at a minimum of 1GB, so it is always prudent to be connected to a stable Wi-Fi network before starting, not to mention having at least 50% of battery life on your device available. Oh yes, do make a backup of your important files, too, just in case Murphy comes a-knockin’ on your door.
