LG has started delivering Android 7.0 to owners of
its modular G5 handset in South Korea, in the process claiming to be the first
company to roll Nougat out to an existing Marshmallow phone
. LG’s recent V20 was also the first phone to launch with Nougat on
board, ahead of Google’s own Pixel devices in most countries.

There’s a catch, though — only Korean users are
getting the update today. LG says customers in the Americas, Asia, and
elsewhere will have to wait for theirs to drop “in the weeks to come,” which as
ever will be subject to the usual carrier-approval dance. Still, the Korea
rollout suggests that LG hasn’t run into any technical issues with the G5, so hopefully
a US release won’t be too far off.
