LG G6 and LG V30 will receive Android 8.1 Oreo, get Android Enterprise Recommended approval
LG has just announced that two of its highest-end devices right now - the LG G6 and the LG V30 - will become part of Google's new-fangled Android Enterprise Recommended program after getting updated to Android 8.1 Oreo. Thanks to this certification, the two devices will be explicitly recommended by Google for use in corporations and other large businesses.

While LG hasn't committed to revealing when this update will land, we have a feeling it will take some time. After all, even Android 8.0 Oreo is not out yet for the two devices officially, though beta programs bring Oreo to adventurous users in the US, China, and South Korea. The Oreo update was supposed to arrive in February but it's still a chimera for the majority of regular users.

And they want Samsung's head for slow updates for their 2017 flagships.

At least it's going to get 8.1 at some point. Samsung rarely updates above the .0 version. Only if there is some fatal flaw in the .0 version.

Sure. The largest Android manufacturer...with the most expensive devices...raking in the most $$...yea, they have to step it up. Especially when down and out, little mom and pop OEM like HTC can get Oreo on their 2016 flagship HTC10 before Sammy's 2016 flagship!?

Still rocking the V20 here, but I'm fed up with delays in getting updates. Can't wait to get the Pixel 3. Hopefully Treble will speed up update releases but I'm not gonna wait around to find out
