LG V30 update: Android Oreo available for Indian V30+; Verizon rolls out May patch

In line with Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended Program, the LG V30 is expected to join a few other devices in receiving Android 8.1 Oreo update. At the moment, LG V30 and V30+ have already been updated to Android Oreo in Korea, which is nothing out of the expectations. LG has always updated devices in the local market first before moving out to global markets.

Prior to this update, the expectation was that LG V30 will go straight to Android 8.1 as opposed to taking the 8.0 route. 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.

However, according to the latest developments, LG V30 will still receive Android 8.0 Oreo. Surprisingly, Verizon Wireless, which has a poor track record in software updates, has a ready Oreo update for the V30. The update, which weighs 1.7GB and installs software version VS99620a, is rolling out over the air and comes with February’s Android security patches.

Even more interesting is the fact that LG is also adding the AI camera features that made their debut on the LG V30S ThinQ at the MWC to the V30. The update has already been rolled out in South Korea and we expect it to cross over to other markets sooner than later.

Note that folks in the U.S. using the V30 started receiving Oreo beta on January 14, 2018, coming in as software version US99818F. As you’d expect, though, this was for the unlocked V30 handsets only. In India, users of the LG V30 Plus had to wait until July 13, 2018 for the Oreo update to arrive. Like other regions, Indian also gets the V30S’ ThinQ capabilities on the V30 Plus.
