The LG V20 is scheduled to be unveiled on September 6
Google has confirmed that the upcoming LG V20 smartphone will be the first device to offer Android Nougat v7.0 out of the box. The company made the announcement on the official webpage of Android Nougat. It is usually a Nexus device that gets to offer the newest flavour of Android before anyone else, but it seems like Google is taking a break from tradition this year. While LG has already confirmed that the V20 would come with Android Nougat, it wasn't known if it was indeed going to be the first. The device is scheduled to be unveiled on September 6.
However, while Google may not have unveiled new Nexus devices, it's previous generation Nexus devices will still be the first to be upgraded to the latest version of Android. The company has announced that it has started rolling out the update to the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, alongside the Pixel C tablet, Nexus Player and the General Mobile 4G (Android One).
Coming back to the LG V20, not much is known about the device except for the fact that it will come preloaded with Android Nougat. However, renders of the phone have been posted online and suggest that the device might come with a dual-rear camera setup and a secondary screen. The phone is also tipped to come with a QHD display measuring 5.6 or 5.7-inches along with a Snapdragon 820 or 821 chipset. Further, the device is expected to offer 4GB of RAM.
