LG starts rolling out Android Nougat update for the G5 in South Korea, other markets to follow

Mark it down, everyone: LG is the second OEM to start the Nougat rollout to its early 2016 phone, the G5.

Software navigation keys have always worked pretty much identical to physical ones, with one exception.
