Android 8.0 beta starts rolling out in China to the LG G6
Screenshots taken by an LG G6 owner in China reveal that LG's 2017 flagship (unless you give the LG V30 that honor) is beginning to receive an Android 8.0 beta thanks to an OTA update. The software version of the beta is V19A. Just yesterday, the company sent out a stable version of Android 8.0 to the LG V30 in South Korea. Among the features that the new Android build features is picture-in-picture, allowing users to watch video while using am app running in the background. In addition, there are advanced app shortcuts, a new settings screen, adoptive icons, the capability to snooze notifications from certain apps, and more.

It is unknown at this point whether LG plans on sending the Oreo beta to LG G6 models in other countries, or if it will simply release the final version when it is ready. LG has already implemented some changes to the LG V30's version of Oreo that were suggested by 500 beta users.

The versions of the LG G6 that are receiving the Android 8.0 beta in China include the following model numbers:

LGM-G600L
LGM-G600S
LGM-G600K
LGM-G600LR

Do not update, it will cripple your phone. After updating my N8, I've seen battery drainage and slight slower reaction after 2 updates. I've reverted rooted back to the original Rom. Bldy astrds Samsung Pos. The same happened to my S7 and Sony Z5.

Is this the China mainland version of G6? Because as far as I know G6 wasn't officially sold at the mainland, plus it came with Chrome browser too, so I am kinda curious which model he is using that got the Oreo beta.
