Google's Android 7.0 (Nougat) is undoubtedly being anxiously awaited by both loyalists as well as the general users alike across the world. With this being the scenario, it is only natural for Android users to start predicting about which the very first handset running Google's newest operating system out of the box would be.

The natural and obvious assumption that comes to mind whenever a new Google Android OS iteration comes to the fore is the Nexus range of devices that are generally amongst the first to run Android OSes straight out of the box.

However, this time around, the Nexus trend could witness a change as according to a News18 report, the yet to be released LG V20 (rumoured to be releasing later in the year) could initially offer Android 7.0 straight out of the box, then followed by the Nexus smartphone range.

This latest report adds substance to earlier reports that hinted about the LG V20 being released with the Android 7.0 operating platform out of the box.

At this point in time, the public rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat is yet to be confirmed officially, but is expected by loyalists to seed by the end of August.

As far as the key technical specifications of LG V20 are concerned, the smartphone is rumored to feature the below aspects:

  • 5.7-inch display having resolution of 1440 x 2560
  • Android 7.0 (Nougat) operating system out of the box
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, along with Adreno 530 GPU
  • 20 MP rear camera
  • 8 MP front snapper
  • 4/6 GB RAM
  • 32/64/128 GB internal storage variants
  • LTE, HSPA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB connectivity
  • 4,000 mAh Lithium-Ion battery.
