European LG G6 expected to receive Android 8.0 Oreo in Q2 2018

European LG G6 expected to receive Android 8.0 Oreo in Q2 2018
The G6 is definitely not the first LG smartphone to receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, but even being the second means waiting quite a long time. Although a beta program seems to be live in China, the LG G6 won't be getting Android Oreo until February in the Middle East region, and that's only if LG's customer service was correct.

If you've purchased your LG G6 in the United States or Europe, you'll have to wait even longer. According to LG Italy, LG G6 is supposed to be updated to Android Oreo within the first half of 2018, which means the update might arrive by June.

However, the Twitter handle of LG Italy narrows down the time-frame a bit by saying that the release of Android 8.0 Oreo for LG G6 is planned for the second quarter of 2018. Basically, this means that you'll have to wait until April / May for Android Oreo, but only if you're based in Europe.

As far as the US version goes, we have absolutely no idea when the update will hit the LG G6. It might be released after the European model or at the same, but it's hard to believe it will go live before Q2 2018.

Finally LG beat Samsung in one aspect.. sending slower updates to their flagship devices. Take your time LG.

LG just burried themselves as deep as they possibly could. Their FLAGSHIP phone will receive the update 9 months late, and then not even the latest Oreo 8.1. So lame...

Misleading title, there is nowhere mentioned Q2 for the release, please stop interpreting it your way, they clearly avoid to name specific date, that doesnt mean it cant come in February or March for example....

LG is so slow with updates. It is interesting that they are not even mentioning LG V20 when they talk about Oreo update.
