LG V30 users in US report receiving Oreo update
- LG V30 users on Verizon report receiving Android Oreo update.
- The update comes around two months after it was first released in South Korea.
- It will bring features such as picture-in-picture mode, smart text selection, and improved notification settings.
After rolling out Android Oreo for V30 users in South Korea over two months ago, recent reports suggest that LG is now also beginning to provide owners in the US with the long-awaited update. That is, if you bought your phone from Verizon.
According to DroidLife, the update is Oreo 8.0 (not 8.1) and it comes in at a fairly hefty 1702.3 MB. It will bring all the expected Oreo features to the V30 such as picture-in-picture mode, smart text selection, and improved notification settings.
While there is no news yet about V30 Oreo updates from other carriers, now that Verizon has released its update other networks will likely not be far behind.
The Oreo update isn’t the only update for V30 owners to look forward to. LG recently announced that it would begin updating V30 devices with the AI features from the V30S ThinQ. These updates started to be released in Korea on March 9. Unfortunately, there is no mention of when these will be unveiled for users outside of LG’s home country.
