Rumors and leaks have been pointing to Android 7.0 Nougat launching today, and here’s yet another sign of that happening. Google just published the new website for Android 7.0 Nougat, which shows off some of their more consumer-friendly features. Including things like multi-window, faster multi-tasking and new emojis. It’s a pretty neat looking website, and if you want to know everything that’s new in Nougat, this is a great place to check.

Android 7.0 Nougat has been made official already, but the stable version of the operating system has not yet been made official. Many are expecting the final version to begin its roll out today to a number of Nexus devices. Like the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player and the Pixel C. However, the next-generation of Nexus devices aren’t likely to be announced today or with Android 7.0 Nougat. The new website even shows that the LG V20 will definitely be the first smartphone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat. Which means that whatever HTC has cooking up with Google (whether it be Nexus branded or not), they won’t be launching until after the LG V20 – which the South Korean company will be announcing on September 6th in New York. That lines up nicely with previous rumors on the new Nexus devices coming on October 4th, as well.

Google hasn’t yet made Nougat official, but with the new website going up today, the update to Android 7.0 is definitely imminent. Soon, everyone will be able to use multi-window on their smartphones, as well as experience the next step in material design and so much more that Nougat has to offer. On a lot of levels, Nougat looks to be a pretty small update to Android, but it’s actually a fairly large one. Of course, it’ll only be available for Nexus devices and Android One devices at launch. But we should be seeing updates to other flagships rather quickly, especially since OEMs have had their hands on the code for quite some time already. Especially when it comes to LG, and the fact that their beta test for Nougat on the LG G5 begins today in South Korea.
