Android Police is behind the report, with some screenshots that show "in-progress" evidence of the new software, with a nice new replacement of the Google Search bar widget at the top. There's a new way to open the app drawer, and there's also space for what could turn into revamped navigation buttons.

We will know more next month when Google launches its new Nexus smartphones, but LG will be the first to market with an Android 7.0-powered smartphone with its upcoming dual-screen V20 smartphone.
