LG G6 is officially getting Android Oreo starting Monday, G5 and V20 to follow
LG just announced that its G6 smartphone - an ex-flagship launched in August 2017 - is finally getting an official Android 8 Oreo update. More exactly, the update will be rolled out starting Monday, April 30, first to G6 units in South Korea, LG's home country. This will be the inaugural update released through LG's new Software Upgrade Center (opened a couple of weeks back).

At this time, there is no word on exactly when LG G6 units in the US and other markets will receive Android Oreo. However, we're fairly certain it won't be long now, and we hope US carriers are not going to take their sweet time to test and approve the update.

Android 8 Oreo will bring an enhanced interface, picture-in-picture mode, improved speed, better battery life, and improved stability to the LG G6. Besides that, the update may also include some of the AI (Artificial Intelligence) features that recently debuted on the LG V30s ThinQ.  

After updating the G6, LG says it'll bring Android Oreo to its G5 and V20 smartphones (both released in 2016). Further details on this will be announced at a later date.
