LG K20 Oreo update
Android 8.0 Oreo update: Eligible
It had been widely thought that the LG K20 will remain stuck on Android Nougat, but to our surprise, AT&T has an update to Oreo 8.1 available. Whether this will push other carriers to release an update to Oreo for the K20 is still unknown, but considering that Android Pie is already here and Android Q will soon be the new kid on the block, chances are growing slimmer each day.
