We just got word from multiple readers that the LG V30 on Verizon is receiving its update to Android 8.0 “Oreo” right now!
Verizon has not yet posted any of the details for the update, but as you can see in the screenshot below, it is Android 8.0 and not 8.1. As expected, the update is quite large at 1.7GB. You’ll want to be on WiFi for this one. The LG V30 Oreo update drops in as software version VS99620a.
If I’m not mistaken, this is the first LG Oreo update in the US.
To check for the update, head into Settings>System update. Go! Go! Go!
UPDATE: Verizon is also updating the LG G6 today, just not to Oreo. It’ll see the February security patch and software version VS98816A.
UPDATE 3/13: Verizon posted the full changelog. You can find it at the source link below.
UPDATE 3/28: AT&T LG V30 is now getting the same update, only it includes ThinQ branding and new AI features.
Cheers Bart and Jonathan!
