LG gives select Korean G5 users access to Android Nougat

LG is giving very few G5 users a taste of Android's upcoming mobile platform. And when we say "very few," we mean it: the phonemaker is limiting beta Nougat access to 2,000 G5 owners, which is but a minuscule fraction of the world's Android users. Also, if you want to be one of the lucky 2,000, you need to be in South Korea. If you just happen to be in LG's home country, you need to download the OS Preview application from the local version of Google Play, according to Droid Life. After you've installed and downloaded the OS, you can send in your thoughts to the phonemaker. Now, if you're in the US and other parts of the globe, though -- or if you're using another Android device -- you can always sideload the developer preview in case you really can't wait for the platform's official release.LG
