T-Mobile LG G5 owners over at reddit began reporting yesterday that they were able to pull an update to Android Nougat.

All you had to do was just that, bring a Pixel over and sign-up for T-Mobile’s newest plan. As of yesterday, the program was expanded to include Simple Choice customers too. (more…)
Last night, T-Mobile CEO John Legere teased incoming news related to Google’s new Pixel phone.
