Unlocked LG V30 starts getting Android 8.0 Oreo in the US

Unlocked LG V30 starts getting Android 8.0 Oreo in the US
Although all major carriers in the United States have already released Android 8.0 Oreo updates for the LG V30, the unlocked model hasn't received the update yet. It's common knowledge that unlocked smartphone models are the first to receive major Android OS updates, followed by carrier-bound versions.

Well, it appears that LG was forced by US carriers to deliver Android Oreo updates to their units first, and then offer the same service to consumers who bought the unlocked models.

If you've been wondering what's happening with the unlocked LG V30, it appears that Android 8.0 Oreo is now showing up for those who own the US998 LG V30. Since this is a staged rollout, it might not be available to everyone right away, so some unlocked LG V30 owners might have to wait a few more days.

Aside from the usual Android 8.0 Oreo new features and improvements, the update contains new AI features and camera enhancements, as well as the April or May security patch.
