A little more than one week after Sprint’s LG G5 was updated to Android 7.0, another carrier’s G5 is getting a Nougat treat.

The T-Mobile LG G5 is now receiving its Android 7.0 update. While T-Mo itself hasn’t officially announced the rollout, several T-Mobile LG G5 owners have gotten their Nougat update over the past day or two.

As you might expect for an updated to Android 7.0, this update is large, weighing in at 1272.9MB. So if you’ve got a T-Mobile LG G5, you may want to find a speedy Wi-Fi connection before you begin downloading this update.

As for what’s included, you’ll get Nougat treats like quick reply notifications, split-screen app support, and more. Also included are the November 1 Android security patches.

If you’ve got a T-Mobile LG G5 and you haven’t yet updated, you can check manually by going into Settings > General > About phone > Update center > System update > Check for update. Alternatively, some folks have had luck triggering the update by turning off Auto-date in the G5’s settings and then manually setting the clock to some time between 11:00 pm and 4:00 am.
