AT&T starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat update for LG G5

Following the release of Android 7.0 Nougat for Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, AT&T is now seeding the same update for another 2016 flagship smartphone, the LG G5. Although AT&T hasn’t made it official yet, many customers report Android 7.0 Nougat has arrived on their LG G5 smartphones.

According to the screenshots published on Reddit, LG G5 owners at AT&T should look for a firmware update with build number NRD90U. It appears that the update is about 1.5GB in size, so make sure you have enough storage before attempting to upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge get Android 7.0 Nougat on Sprint

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are unquestionably great in almost every aspect, it’s not always plain sailing for those rocking Sammy’s still-flagship duo. No matter how many bells and whistles they can boast, they’re not exempt from those oh-so-slow firmware updates and hence, many owners have still not yet seen any of the six-month-old Android 7.0 Nougat. Still, Sprint users can today breathe a sigh of relief, for the long-awaited Nougat roll-out has finally begun.

AT&T has been busily pushing Nougat out to Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users in recent times, as has …

T-Mobile's Galaxy S7 Nougat beta users start getting the official Android 7.0 update

While the unlocked Exynos versions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in UK, Germany and other places have been receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update on their handsets, the US carriers are still dragging their feet a month after Samsung announced the official rollout. That’s to be expected, of course, as the local units are powered by a different chipset, and… carriers. 

T-Mobile, however, is almost ready with the update, it seems, as it has started pushing retail Nougat with the new Samsung UX overlay to its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users who subscribed for the beta version …

Nvidia's Shield Tablet K1 is now receiving Android 7.0 Nougat

Although the hype surrounding tablets are certainly died down quite a bit over the years, there are still plenty of good options to choose from. Apple’s iPad still remains as the king if money isn’t an object and you want the best of the best, options such as the Asus ZenPad Z8 and 3S 10 offer a lot of bang for your buck, and if you’re looking to spend no more than $200 but still want something that’s enjoyable to use, you’ve got devices like the Nvidia Shield Tablet K1. The Shield Tablet K1 was originally released back in 2015, but despite its age, it still has quite a lot to offer for just …

Unlocked Moto Z units receiving Nougat update in the U.S.

As promised, Motorola is now rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the unlocked variant of the Moto Z in the U.S., a wait that, for many, was far too long.

The company told Android Central last month that it wouldn’t be until February that the unlocked Moto Z would begin getting upgraded to Android 7.0, well after the Verizon edition, which was released over two months earlier.

Motorola USA hasn’t acknowledged the rollout yet, which appears to be happening in small chunks to minimize problems.

The company also said that it would begin pushing the Nougat update to the Moto Z Play sometime in March.

Motorola has come under fire in recent months for falling behind other manufacturers in getting the latest version of Android to its devices, especially since, when it was owned by Google (but still run independently), it was second only to its parent company in issuing updates to its devices.

News about HTC 10's delayed Nougat update for mainland Europe due out soon

Earlier this morning, we passed along some good news about the HTC One M9. In mainland Europe, Android 7.0 is being pushed out for that handset. But as so often happens with an Android update, chaos reigns. For example, if today’s rollout goes without a hitch, in mainland Europe the older HTC One M9 will have been updated to Nougat before last year’s HTC 10 flagship. It boggles the mind especially since the HTC 10 already received the update in the states.

Last week, we told you that HTC’s Product and Service Director Graham Wheeler had disseminated a tweet about the delayed Nougat update …

HTC 10 Nougat update delayed for mainland Europe

HTC 10 owners in mainland Europe might be a wee bit jealous of HTC 10 owners in the states. It seems that while the latter have received their update to Android 7.0, Nougat remains elusive for Europeans living in the mainland. HTC’s Product and Service Director Graham Wheeler sent out a tweet today, noting that Android 7.0 has been sent to HTC 10 owners in the U.K., Russia, Middle East and Turkey.

Unfortunately, Wheeler had to send out another tweet saying that HTC had halted the update to mainland Europe. While he didn’t have an exact reason as to why the update was being delayed, he did …

Sony halts Android 7.0 Nougat rollout for Xperia Z5, Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet? (Confirmed)

UPDATE: Sony confirmed that it pulled the Android 7.0 Nougat update for all its Xperia devices after discovering some audio-related issues and problems with SD card encrypted data read performance: Here is the company’s official statement:

We were made aware of reports from some users experiencing inconsistencies related to audio playback via third-party apps and SD card encrypted data read performance, after upgrading to Android 7.0, Nougat. We’ve identified the root cause and are aiming to provide corrective firmware and re-commence the rollout …

OnePlus 3 and 3T receive OxygenOS 4.0 Nougat

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I was wrong. When I received nothing but another beta build a few days ago on my OnePlus 3, I was highly skeptical about OnePlus making its goal of getting Nougat out on the stable channel for its flagship devices by the end of 2016. Well, here we are in the final hours of the year and the notorious manufacturer has come through. Both the OnePlus 3 and 3T are receiving OxygenOS 4.0, i.e. Nougat, via a staged rollout starting today.

The changelog for both device updates is the same, so here it is:
– Upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat
– New Notifications Design
– New Settings Menu Design
– Multi-Window View
– Notification Direct Reply
– Custom DPI Support
-Added Status Bar Icon Options
– Improved Shelf Customization

The OnePlus 3 is not new to Nougat. It received it back in November via Open Beta builds, which I found to be quite stable. One really odd thing is that, alongside this official push to Android 7.0, OnePlus also decided to release Open Beta 1 for the 3T. I am not entirely certain on what the point of that is… but whatever.

The OTA will start rolling out incrementally, as usual. This should feel rather exciting for those of you that have chosen to remain on the stable channel. I can tell you that Nougat is really awesome on the OnePlus 3, so have fun!
