When the LG V30 was launched back in N0vember, the company promised to update it to the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. It seems like the company has started to deliver on its promise. A few SK Telecom units of the LG V300S have already started to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo software update. Meanwhile, the handset variants available globally are still running on Android Nougat build.
The US variants of the LG V30 may receive the update pretty soon. A user posted a few screenshots of his LG V30 US998 version running on Android 8.0 Oreo on mylgphones.com. Currently, the update doesn’t seem to be available over-the-air (OTA) yet, and it seems like the user has received the update files through other means.
In the post, he has written that the US99819f ROM is already being tested and LG will be releasing it via OTA very soon. As per the post, this update will roll-out in phases to the users.
If this report is true, then the other variants of the LG V30 including the LG V30+ which is selling in India will also soon be receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. This new update will bring along features like – the Picture-in-picture mode, Smart text select, Play Protect, Auto-enable Wi-Fi, Night Light slider, and much more.
We tried getting in touch with LG India to inquire about the possible release date for Android Oreo on those handsets here. We are yet to get a response. We will update this space as soon as we get to know the official date or time frame.
