However UK users may still need to wait a bit longer for the upgrade, as it seems LG is only launching Android Nougat on a country-by-country basis.

The rollout appeared to begin over the weekend, when LG's official Twitter account for the Philippines confirmed that Android Nougat 7.0 was now available to download.
This followed in the footsteps of LG's home market of South Korea back in November, which was soon followed by a number of other countries, including the USA.
The launch marks the first time that Android Nougat has been made available to users of a device that originally launched with Android Marshmallow.
LG said back in November that the Android Nougat update would roll out to UK G5 devices "in the weeks to come", but so far the software is still yet to arrive.

LG has enjoyed a strong relationship with Google concerning Android Nougat, with the company's LG V20 smartphone the first to be released to the public carrying the software.
Currently, only Google's Pixel and Pixel XL devices offer Android Nougat in the UK, although several other smartphones are gradually rolling out the update.
Google originally announced Nougat last Summer with the internet giant's own-brand devices the first to get access to the new features.

Both Sony and Samsung were set to roll out the update to users this month, but both companies have already run into issues.

Sony has also halted the launch of this new OS on its Xperia range after a number of users reported problems.
The company was set to bring Android Nougat to its Xperia Z5, Xperia Z3+, and Xperia Z4 devices when the problems appeared.
