If you’re up to date with the latest tech news, or if you maybe nurture some sort of special interest for the Android mobile OS and the devices that support it, then you surely know that Android O is coming this fall, after a good few months of strong debate and immense expectations. If the current developer preview will hold true at the moment of the launch, then Android O is surely something worth getting excited for. The new mobile operating system that Google plans to put out soon will certainly make any device that supports it ten times better.
But this article is not about that, but about the rather unfortunate Android Nougat. Although Android 7.0 Nougat is a sturdy and quality operating system, it has been met with one of the slowest rolling out processes in the entire history of the OS. Thus, there are still a lot of phones that don’t run it, and not only because they couldn’t support it in the first place. Luckily, the LG G4 is no longer one of them, but there is a catch to its update. Keep reading to find out what that catch is exactly.
The Catch Is…
So, as we mentioned before, there’s a catch to the Nougat update for the LG G4, namely the fact that it’s only available in South Korea, the homeland of the tech company. On top of that, the update won’t roll out over the air as it’s customary with operating system upgrades, but rather it will only be available through the LG Bridge app. We don’t know why LG aren’t making this update available in the USA as well, especially when considering that America is the second largest market for LG devices in the entire world.
