LG upgrades V30 OS to Android 8.0 Oreo

LG Electronics said Tuesday that it is updating the operating system on its premium smartphone V30 to the Android 8.0 Oreo system, becoming the first Korean manufacturer to upgrade to Oreo.

Since Nov. 27, LG has been running a LG OS Preview program allowing V30 users to try the Oreo OS on their devices and provide feedback on how existing apps could be optimized for the new system.

The latest OS from Android includes features that boost speed and extend battery life, as well as a picture-in-picture function that allows users to keep playing a video while opening up a second app.

LG V30 users can upgrade software wirelessly on their devices, or by connecting to a PC and using the LG Bridge program.
