Hello Kenan,
 Users with older handsets like the LG G4 may have to wait a few more months but early 2017 is plausible based on this year's update schedule.
What does it exactly mean? I don't know, but you'll get it sometime for sure.

This is from Android Central which is pretty reliable and an update to nouget for the G4 is still up in the air it seems and here's what they had to say

The LG G4 and LG V10 might get updated, and they could be made better with Android 7.0, but each has a strike against it. The G4 seems like one of those phones LG wishes they could take back. It has a beautiful screen and seems very capable, but the components were plagued with hardware problems and the software just wasn't ready. If you have a G4 that the mainboard hasn't taken a ride in that long black Cadillac (yet) and can put up with the quirks of LG's software and occasional glitches, I hope they can update it to Nougat and fix some of the issues for you. The phone deserves it. But I'm not holding my breath.

Ok so here's the latest on the Nouget update for the G4 and it looks like you'll be waiting till the third or fourth quarter of the year for it

Since last post 6 months ago, is there some development or the answer is still the same?

A quick web search indicates an update has been released in LG's home territory, but nowhere else.
