For some reason, LG has decided to push out a press release proclaiming that Android Nougat has arrived for the G5. That is, for G5 units in South Korea.

“While LG G5 owners in Korea are the first to receive the OS upgrade, they will be followed by customers in the Americas, Asia and other markets in the weeks to come,” the company stated.

One leaked tell for when we could expect the upgrade for the G5 in Australia targeted mid-November. Furthering the software’s spread could take several weeks.

Notably, LG mentioned that it  “has the distinction of being the first company after Google to offer Nougat as an upgrade to an existing smartphone running Android Marshmallow.”

Contrary to that statement, Motorola sent out final Android Nougat OTAs in India to the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus last month. And that was only a few dozen hours after launching a soak test in Brazil.
