LG Android Nougat Update
The LG smartphones have been awesome with their speed for Android Marshmallow. The LG was indeed the first OEM to get the Android Marshmallow update after Google.
Of course, LG V20 gets the honor of being the first smartphone to arrive with Android Nougat out of the box beating the Nexus series. The first LD Android Nougat update could happen in the LG G5 in November 2016. The company reported an Android beta program for the LG G5 in mid-August.
Samsung Android Nougat update
Samsung is not actually speedy when it comes to Android updates. Sammy had confirmed Android Nougat for the Note 7 in 3 months till it suffered fires and it was finally discontinued.
That target is likely to apply to the S7 and S7 Edge instead. With the Note 7 recall still ongoing, we cannot say if the company will try the Android 7.0 Nougat, for the Galaxy S7 before the end of this year. The Galaxy S8 devices expected to arrive in 2017 are likely to run Android 7.0 out of the box.

The Moto owners are likely to get Android Nougat update earlier than most handsets. The Motorola owners can be one of the first non-Nexus users to see the Android Nougat in 2016, even possibly beating the LG G5.
Lenovo confirmed that the Moto G4 and Moto Z families would be getting the Android Nougat update in 2016. With a later addition of more handsets to the confirmed list.
