South Korean manufacturer LG just released the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update for LG V10, currently rolling out in its home country, for various versions of the handset, over the air, being distributed in a phase-wise manner.
Based on Android 7.0 and featuring LG UX 5.0 on top, the update will slowly reach all users throughout the next weeks. However, you can also install Nougat on LG V10 manually, by following the detailed guide, available below. In just a few minutes, you will be able to enjoy the latest variant of Google’s mobile operating system!
Please take a few moments and read the following aspects, in order to avoid any issues during the installation process:
- The Nougat KDZ update is just for the LG V10 F600K , F600S and F600L variants. Don’t try it on other models, since it won’t work properly.
- It’s highly recommended to take a full backup of the phone, just for the safer side, before starting.
- Make sure that the battery level is somewhere around 50-60%, so you can avoid an eventual accidental shutdown, in the middle of the process.
