LG G6 scheduled to receive Android 8.0 Oreo by February, but there's a catch

LG G6 is one of the many flagships that has yet to be updated to the most recent version of Android. Although the South Korean company promised to deliver Android Oreo to the LG G6 as fast as possible, it looks like the update won't make it live until next year.

As some of you probably know by now, LG has already kicked off an Android Oreo beta program for the G6, but it's only available in China. Now we have more information that indicates the Asian version of the LG G6 might be the first to receive the update.

According to LG Customer Service, an Android Ore update for the LG G6 will be released by February, which could mean that those who own the smartphone might get it as early as next month.

However, as mentioned earlier, LG's customer service refers to the H870S model, which is specifically built for the Middle East region. It remains to be seen how long it will take LG to make the update available to other G6 models.
