LG rolls out Android Oreo beta for V30 and V30+

LG is rolling out a beta version of Android Oreo to some V30 and V30+ owners. The update has a size of 1.2GB and includes some of Oreo's top features, such as Picture-in-Picture mode, Adaptive Icons, and so on. The latest Android Security patch and a host of fixes and improvements are also mentioned in the changelog.

If you haven't heard about the beta program, that's because LG has decided to offer the preview only to users in its home country - South Korea. While this may leave some of you disappointed, it is still an indication that the latest major version of Android is now a step closer to V30 and V30+ owners around the globe. Besides, such early test builds aren't known for being too stable or bug-free anyways. 

LG has officially stated that it will aim to introduce a stable version of Oreo for Korean users in December, meaning that it shouldn't take too long before it is optimized for other regions as well. On the other hand, the LG G6 will probably have to wait a bit more for Android 8.0 as it features a different chipset. Still, we suspect that the G6 is next on LG's priority list.
