LG, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer has finally released the official Android 7.0 Nougat update to the LG G4 units in its home country. If you own an LG G4 and live in Korea then you should see the OTA update on your phone. The update comes as version 30C for the F500K variant and 30B for the F500L and F500s models which are all Korean variants.
