LG G4 was once the most popular Android phone since its launch last year. Mostly because it came with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware out of the box and also for its stunning camera. Now, the phone has grabbed more attention as LG released official Android 7.0 Nougat firmware update for the same. It comes with firmware version v30b and v30c for other variants. The stock KDZ files are now available for download.
Currently, only the Korean variants of the LG G4 have started receiving the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with firmware build number F500S30b, F500L30b, F500K30c. The global variant LG G4 H815 shall soon receive a similar update later this month. This also includes the US carrier variants like AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint G4 with build number v30b or v30c.
Moreover, users in Poland have started receiving Nougat OTA for LG G4 H815 – EU from Polish Carrier PLAY (with Wifi-Calling).
LG G4 makes the third device in a row to receive the Nougat update following LG G5 and LG V20. The LG G3, however, has no hope as it wont receive any official updates. You might as well settle for custom ROMS like Lineage OS 14.1 or Resurrection Remix 5.8.3 based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Moreover, we already have the LG G6 running the latest 7.1.1 Nougat OS out of the box.
