LG V10, the company's first smartphone to feature two display panels on the front side will shortly receive an update to the latest Android Nougat OS from Google. Ever since it released in October 2015, LG's trial with a dual-display smartphone paid off, quickly transitioning into one of the best rugged smartphones. It's a well-known fact that most of the premium smartphones suffer from lack of frequent software updates.

The LG V10 has already received the OTA update to Android Nougat OS for users in the manufacturer's home turf, South Korea. As reported by  GSMArena, the smartphone will be receiving a global rollout of the new update in the coming days. Alongside the new operating system itself, the smartphone will also receive a new user experience and some minor bug fixes.

Reports from the internet suggested that LG had no immediate plans of bringing the new operating system to the smartphone at least in the first half of the fiscal year. Currently, the software update for LG V10 is offered to carrier variants such as the F500L, F600K, and F600S. The stock firmware is also available directly from the company's website.

The new Android Nougat update has been introduced to the LG V10 quicker than expected, as noted from PhoneArena. Starting June, the update for the new operating system will make its way into other countries as stated by LG in March this year. With a sturdy build, the smartphone is also shock resistant.

Hardware specifications for the LG V10 Include a 5.7-inch Quad HD Display on the top with a display resolution of 1440p. The secondary 2.1-inch display, just above the primary panel, has a resolution of 160x1040p. A hexacore Snapdragon 808 processor with Adreno 518 integrated graphics also comes with 4GB of RAM. The V10 smartphone also supports fast battery charging where the device can charge up to 50 percent in just 40 minutes thanks to QuickCharge 2.0 technology from Qualcomm.
