While there have been several rumours regarding the next Nexus device that were both expected to be manufactured by HTC to comes pre-loaded with the new Android Nougat, their exact launch date remains a mystery. Along the line, the second edition of LG V series smartphone "V20" surfaced and was later confirmed by Google to boots Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.

The V20 was expected to launch at the IFA event that will kickoff in Berlin next week, but surprisingly, Google has decided to start seeding Android Nougat to pre-existing Nexus devices globally, a breathtaking move that has never been made in the company's history.

To partake, all users will need to enable "automatic update" under settings or manually check by navigating to Settings -> About Phone.
