Furthermore, the Android 7.0 Nougat brings Camera API 2 support for more control of the camera.
In other news, Sprint is said to be the first U.S. carrier to roll out the Android 7.0 Nougat in the LG G5 handset. Previously, the LG G5 handsets in South Korea received the OS update. The Android 7.0 Nougat is expected to feature improved performance, security updates as well as other enhancements at 1,275.4MB, according to report.
