Confirmed: The LG V20 will be “the first smartphone that comes with Android Nougat”


Google has officially unveiled Android 7.0 Nougat, but in a less traditional way. With Google’s rumored line of Nexus phones not scheduled to release for a couple of months, Google has chosen the LG V20 to unveil the new operating system.

Google today made an announcement via its blog that the LG V20 is going to be the first phone pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat, Google posted a photo of LG’s flagship phone, giving us a first look at the device’s curvatures.

The image Google has released reaffirms early speculation of the phone’s appearance,which appears in line with images that had leaked a couple of weeks ago. The holographic style image that Google has teased us with also shows off a similar design to the G5, which looks to have modular capabilities.

The image also shows off the device’s homescreen, which looks very similar to the G5 as it has the same layout with rounded app icons. Therefore, it’s likely LG will load the same version of its skin UI on the V20 as it did on the G5.

While the phone is not yet available, it is expected to launch on September 6th, with a release date rumored for later that month. This is when we’ll know all the details, specs, release information, and availability details. Have a look at the latest teaser image here.
