LG G4 7.0 update

Not exactly holding my breath on this but would be nice to know if Fido is actually in the process of pushing this update out (not that they would say if they were, probably get the famous keep checking the update page! line they love).

 

Meanwhile security patch is still from July 2016, sort of laughable at this point. Oh well, at least the phone was free...

Re: LG G4 7.0 update

Hello Thesnowyuser,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  As far as I am aware, Android 7 has not been released for the H812 (see here, here, and here). I am doubtful as to whether it will be released for this phone. I understand some sources say planned upgrade to 7.0. However, those sources usually refer generally to the LG G4 and not specific versions of that model. Indeed, the H815 (and some others) did receive the Nougat update. Interestingly, LG Canada lists the H812 as discontinued whereas there is no such mention of status regarding the H815 on LG UK. You would have to contact LG Canada to determine whether Android 7 is planned for the H812.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

@jm6262 I don't think LG even confirmed if the G4 will be getting Android 7.

They did along with the V10. A few versions of the G4 are already running it, the South Korea one for instance.

Yes the South Korean version but not any of the international ones.

If they don't release it for Canada at least then there is nothing Fido can do, LG has to first release the update.

Still you have to wait for them to release it for the Canadian version which is the LGH812.

Re: LG G4 7.0 update

Possibly off-topic post.

Would be nice that there would be an actual update that permits a full unlock, and not a BS seemingly random ”you're in Canada, you don't get to unlock your phone”. H815 folks can, the Korean models can, US models can. Is this a decision from the Canadian carriers to lock the phones? If so, it's bad for business. I'm certainly not getting an LG again. Even if they give me a phone for free, no ”upgrade fee” (which is yet another money grab).

Re: LG G4 7.0 update

If you read the fine print on your contract, most phones sold in Canada are locked if you buy them from a carrier with the exception of Google's Nexus and Pixel product line.  That has been going on for a total of 19 years of owing multiple cell phones. Furthermore, this locked phone applies to all manufacturers including iphone, Nokia, samusng, LG, Motorolla, ZTE, ...etc.

 

The only way to purchase an unlcoked phone is to buy it from the store (e.g., apple store, samsung store).  Alternatively, if you want to unlock your phone now before Dec you can do it yourself via some sites off the internet by paying a small fee.

Re: LG G4 7.0 update

Ok, so now I can ask for my H812 to be unlocked for free. Fido's roadmap shows very few updates. Has Android 7 actially been released for Canada's H812? (I know the H815 sold elsewhere is happily running it).
