LG V30 Receives Android 8.0 Oreo On Verizon


Verizon is now rolling out a new update to the LG V30 that will install the Android 8.0 Oreo. This news comes several months after the smartphone manufacturer started rolling out the stable version of Android Oreo to the units of the smartphone in South Korea late last year. Once this update is installed, users of the device will be able to take advantage of features like the Picture-in-Picture mode. This feature permits users to view two applications at the same time by showing one application in a smaller window on top of another application.

This major operating system upgrade also brings the notification dots feature to the LG V30. The notification dots alert the user on which applications have notifications directly on the home screen. Pressing the notification dots will trigger a set of in-app quick actions. The autofill feature, on the other hand, remembers important information like usernames and passwords, and it helps in reducing the time spent by the user in logging in to websites and applications.

The is the first LG Android Oreo update in the U.S. They’ve been testing Oreo in Korea for several months, but it’s taking quite a while to update devices in the States. The V30 and G6 were very nice devices last year, however, software support has been lacking.
