LG V20 to be first Android 7.0 Nougat OEM device

The timing could not be worse.

The Galaxy Note 7 will likely come out on Tuesday while many of the latest Nexus device owners will, again, likely see their software get updated to Android 7.0 Nougat on Friday. And neither the twain shall meet, at least for the time being. So it goes for most Galaxy Note releases.

So, if not Samsung, which manufacturer will get this year’s brownie points for first native Android N device?

LG will, with its V20. It has not only seemingly confirmed the existence of a V20 device in a press release, but has stated that the phone will have Android 7.0 out of the box. Its release will be in the month of September.

A top executive at the chaebol touted the device as “a new standard for premium phones” with “more enhanced multimedia capabilities.” The V10 featured an integrated DAC, robust camera software and a Second Screen.

Here come the leaks.
