Unlocked LG G5 Variants Receiving Android 7.0 Nougat In US

Owners of the AT&T version of the HTC One M9 are in luck. As many of you who own the unlocked LG G5 probably know by now, all major carriers in the U.S. released the update at some point.

AT&T is finally sending out the update to Android 7.0 Nougat for the HTC One M9 units it's sold.

The device was thought to be receiving the Nougat treat back in February, but T-Mobile had made a mistake by including Nougat in describing what was just a monthly security update. It started with selected Korean G5 variants receiving the OS update followed by the roll out in other regions. But this time around, the current OTA update, which carries software version V55020a, is indeed a Nougat update.

We have some great news for those of you who live in the United States and are now using the unlocked version of the G5 (RS988). As it is being rolled out as an OTA, the notification for the update should soon appear on your device.

But that changes now as users with unlocked LG G5 units in the USA have reported receiving the Nougat update over the air.

The Sprint version of the device has already received the Nougat update, and it had a size to boast. It weighs over 1300MB and when it installs, it pushes your device up to software version RS98821a, Android 7.0, with the April security updates.

You will be able to download the Nougat update via Firmware Over the Air. But make sure you have a stable Wi-Fi connection for downloading the update and at least 50% battery power to see through the whole upgrade process.
