LG G5 Android Oreo update coming soon, new evidence suggests
We've been pleasantly surprised when LG confirmed that one of its older flagships, the G5 is going to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update at some point this year. Along with the G5, the South Korean company promised similar updates for the G6 and V20 smartphones.

The LG G6 has already received the promised update and the V20 is expected to get it sometime in August, at least in North America. Now, we bring you news about one of the oldest LG flagships that will be updated to Android Oreo this year, the G5.

It appears that the update will soon be released in South Korea, followed by a wider rollout some weeks later. We know this because LG has just posted the Android Oreo kernel sources for three specific G5 models, all launched in South Korea: F700K, F700L, and F700S.

Even though we still don't have an ETA for the LG G5 Android Oreo release, the recent events suggest that we won't have to wait too long now. If you're one of the many LG G5 owners out there, then you should know that there's a high chance that Oreo will be the last major Android update this smartphone will receive.
