LG Stylus 2 Plus Appears on Geekbench with Android 7.0 Nougat OS, Release Imminent

LG Stylus 2 Plus

The LG Stylus 2 Plus is midrange phablet released in 2016, but it appears that the South Korean company is getting ready to roll out the new Android 7.0 Nougat OS to this handset.

Apparently, the LG Stylo 2 Plus has appeared on Geekbench with model number LG-K530. Interestingly, the phone has Android 7.0 Nougat running the show, but this doesn’t mean that the OS is already out there ready for download. In fact, not so long ago, the American carrier indicated that the Stylo 2 Plus was receiving the Nougat treat, but it later removed all references to this OS from its software update page.

Now that the LG Stylus 2 Plus has appeared on Geekbench, it is enough to confirm that the phone is currently being tested for Android 7.0 Nougat. As for the official release, it should be happening in the next few weeks, probably before the end of this month or early April, but this is not a guarantee.

As noted earlier, the LG Stylo 2 Plus was born in July 2016 and it comes with a massive 5.7-inch LCD screen that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, the phone packs a Snapdragon 430 SoC that is paired with a RAM of 2GB and 16GB/32GB of expandable storage. This applies to the K530 and MS550 models, but the K535 variant comes with 3GB RAM.

There is a 16MP shooter on the back alongside an 8MP sensor on the front, but those in the U.S. get a 13MP main sensor and a 5MP selfie lens. The front has a LED flash, just like the main camera, however, you won’t find a fingerprint scanner on all models. Where some models have a 2900mAh battery, there are others with a slightly larger 3000mAh unit.
