LG V30 gets stable Android 8.0 Oreo update rolling out on its home turf


It took about three weeks for LG to start seeding the Android 8.0 Oreo beta to the global version of the V30, after it launched the beta in South Korea, so hopefully that's how long it will take for the final stable Oreo version that is rolling out in Korea as we speak, to get to the US shores as well.

LG said it has listened to more than 500 Oreo beta users who have been enlisted to probe the update before it hits the handset as a finalized build, and has implemented their suggestions. "We will provide a differentiated user experience with stable and complete software," chimed Lee Sang-kyu from LG Electronics Mobile. 

So, what's new besides the Android Oreo features like better standby battery drain management, or picture-in-picture? Well, expect advanced app shortcuts, adaptive icons, and a brand new settings screen. What else does LG have in the bag for the US versions? Remains to be seen, hopefully not for long.

And still no support for 'Treble', eh? Sad! G'Day!

Products launching with Oreo are guaranteed to have Treble. The ones which are upgraded to Oreo aren't necessarily supposed to support Treble. G'Morn!

It looks like a majority of phones being upgraded to oreo are lacking treble support.
