If you install the update, you will be doing it on top of Android Marshmallow. However, LG has confirmed the roll out of Android Nougat within the next few months. We don’t have any estimated timeline for the availability of the update.

Before proceeding to download the update, you should activate Wi-Fi to avoid data loss. Moreover, you should charge the handset up to 90 percent to avoid interruption. The company has advised users to charge completely but it is not necessary because the update is not a full blown Android Nougat.

If you are unable to view the update message notification, you should manually verify the existence of the update by tapping Settings icon.
