LG G6 Oreo update: Android 8.0 update rolling out on T-Mobile

In line with Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended Program, LG has confirmed that the G6 will be part of the devices to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update. At the moment, the phone is yet to get an update to Oreo, but beta testing is ongoing in China, with the rollout expected to commence in the near future.

T-Mobile users of the G6 can also rest assured that Oreo is coming soon. The Magenta carrier has recently confirmed that Oreo is under manufacturer development. We can’t give you an exact date, but it should take a few weeks before the OS starts rolling out.

Prior to T-Mobile’s update, it had been claimed that LG G6 will go straight to Android 8.1 as opposed to taking the 8.0 route, but from the look of things, the latter will prevail, at least for a start. In addition to this, being part of the Enterprise Recommended program means that you’ll receive security updates for at least three years, with each update rolling out within 90 days of Google releasing it.

While at it, you may also be interested in sneaking through our posts on the expected Android Oreo release dates for several popular OEMs.

It’s worth noting that LG recently updated the V30 with the AI features that debuted with LG V30S ThinQ. Whether this will also come to the LG G6 is still a mystery, but our hope is that LG brings the power of ThinQ to the G6 too.

Update [April 25, 2018]: LG is basically done with rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to the V30 and now its the turn of the LG G6 to get a similar treat. And indeed Rogers Canada says the OS will start rolling out to the G6 soon. We also expect to see Oreo rolling out to the LG G6 in other markets earlier than Canada, regardless of what “soon” stands for.

April 27: LG confirms Oreo to begin on April 30

LG Electronics has confirmed that LG G6 will start receiving Android 8.0 Oreo beginning next week Monday, April 30th. This comes four months after the company rolled out the OS to the V30 in Korea, but the wait is [arguably] worth it given that you not only get Oreo but also the company’s ThinQ AI features.

The update will start off in Korea before making it to other parts of the world. LG says those using the G6 from Korea will be able to grab the update either as an OTA or using the LG Bridge program on a PC. Whichever way suits you!

May 21: Verizon releases Android 8.0 Oreo update

Verizon Wireless is now rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to the LG G6, making it the first U.S. carrier to do so. The update comes as software version VS98820a and it not only installs Oreo, but also a new security patch for the month of April 2018.

May 26: Europe joins the Oreo party

After Korea and the U.S., it appears that Europe is now receiving the update to Android Oreo on the LG G6. The update, as expected, is arriving over the air and carries software version V20a-EUR-XX with April’s security patches.LG-G6-Oreo-in-Europe
