A new LG tablet by the model number LG V530, that appears to be a successor to the LG G Pad III and LG G Pad X was listed as FCC approved today, so we might be able to expect an LG tablet with Android 7.0 Nougat soon.
The predecessors were launched about this time last year, and although LG have generally been one of the first to update the OS version of their Android tablets, LG also tends to launch new but very similar versions of their tablets every year.
To some extent the reasons has to do with the need to feature the latest cellular technologies, since the majority of LG’s Android tablets are sold through the wireless carriers, often under somewhat different names than LG’s Wi-Fi versions, even when they happen to be sibling tablets with the otherwise similar hardware.
The FCC LG G Pad IV / G Pad X2 approved tablet didn’t get much else than its wireless hardware specs leaked from the FCC document which includes LTE and full Wi-Fi cover. But at least the predecessors are 8-inch Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution tablets, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, and 2GB of RAM.
