T-Mobile may have delayed the LG V30 Android 8.0 Oreo update again
T-Mobile announced less than two weeks ago that its LG V30 variant will receive the long-awaited Android 8.0 Oreo update in mid-April. Unfortunately, if you've purchased your LG V30 from T-Mobile, you'll probably have to wait a while longer.

Although the roll-out should have started this week, T-Mobile support says LG V30 Android 8.0 Oreo update is a few weeks away. If you're not aware of T-Mobile's previous statement, it's worth mentioning the carrier said it was forced to delay the update due to LG making a “booboo.”

Well, it appears that the “booboo” was more serious they have initially thought since it's taking LG about a month to fix it. In the meantime, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon have already updated their LG V30 variants to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Still, two more weeks of waiting shouldn't be such a major issue, after all, LG V30 Android 8.0 Oreo is still coming, just not this week. Or, maybe this is just a big misunderstanding and T-Mobile is going to deliver on its initial promise.

Thanks Ryan!

Glad i just bought a GS9. I doubt the V30 Oreo update will fix the static I get on phone calls via Bluetooth. It is an issue with the head units in Subaru cars and the V30. LG has not even acknowledged the problem, thus making my decision to move on a very easy one.

I literally do not understand what you are trying to say (besides "please stop"). This is a known problem with the v30 and Subaru head units, whether I write about it or not. It was absent on the G2 through G6. Funny thing is, I am back on the V30. My GS8 experience lasted two days.

Feels like "FCC's Ruling" perhaps they have to remove that 40 million dollar money maker from their bloatware. Just came down in the past couple days, and now a new holdup?????

Y'all do realize that Twitter post is from like 2 weeks ago. Shame on the author for not researching it. There is an article from TMo News from April 6th with the Tweets dated April 5th.

The author also did not read the article posted on April 7 by Phone Arena, the very same site which this article is posted, that has the same Twitter conversation with the dates. Instead, the author posts the same tweets but cuts off the dates and marks as a delay and sensationalized it as a fail on T-mobile's part. Bad journalism on your part Mr. Vasile and shame on Phone Arena for allowing a false story to be posted. Quit regurgitating old stories as new stuff and make sure you check what your authors post because you scored a big F on this. I now know who not to trust when it comes to phone information.

Eventhough you think the author mis-stated the dates in this article, it's still applying, because no update yet. Don't shoot the messenger!?! Feels more like something the FCC will be investigating, or some class action suit, in the future, to me.

Hopefully, T-Mobile is waiting so that they can include the V35 features in the update. The update is now scheduled for the same time as the release of the G7 and V35 on May 2. Not likely, but I can dream.
