Android 7.0 Nougat has been around for close to a year now and with many OEMs done with rolling out the OS to their flagship phones, recent attention has been directed to the more budget options in the market.
LG, for instance, has already rolled out the Nougat treat to the 2016 LG G5, but those using the LG K10 on AT&T can now join the party as at the time of this writing. The giant American carrier is rolling out the update with software version K42520c and is coming out over the air.
In addition to updating the LG K10 to Android 7.0 Nougat, the update also carries a new Android security patch for the month of April. Even though this is not the latest version in town, it’s better to see the phone get a bump in terms of security, bug fixes and stability.
If you own an LG K10 and use it on AT&T, be sure to create some real storage space on your phone because this update is quite heavy, weighing at 1.22GB. This means that you need to have a stable internet connection in order to download this OS onto your phone.
For those who feel that downloading over 1GB of files on their LG K10 is too much for their cellular data, well, make sure you get a Wi-Fi connection before you start the update. But as noted, the OS is rolling out over the air and as such, it will take time before all K10 units get it. Feel free to do a manual check via Settings>About phone, just in case you can’t wait for the OTA notification.
