While we wait around for LG's big flagship for 2018, the V30 remains the company's best and most powerful phone currently on the market. The LG V30 shipped with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, but now it's being updated to 8.0 Oreo.
Multiple LG V30 owners who purchased the phone through Verizon Wireless are getting software updates that upgrade the phone to Oreo. The update weighs in at 1702.3 MB, and it brings all of the Oreo goodies you've come to expect.
Along with improved performance, Oreo also adds picture-in-picture, Google's Autofill feature that makes it easier to enter usernames/passwords, notification dots, and much more.
A couple weeks after Verizon started rolling out its Oreo update, Sprint was the next carrier to follow suit. The update is the same size at around 1.7GB, and it has all of the Oreo features you'd expect.
The build number is updated to OPR1.170623.026, and the latest March 2018 security patch is here, too.
As reported by Redditors and many of our readers, AT&T is the latest carrier to start pushing Android 8.0 Oreo to the LG V30.
Just like the Verizon and Sprint updates, Oreo for the AT&T V30 brings the March 2018 security patch, picture-in-picture, and plenty more.
Last but not least, T-Mobile began updating its variant of the LG V30 on May 8. The update weighs in at a little over 1677MB and comes with all the Oreo goodies we know and love.
Along with this, the release notes also reveal that this update adds LG's Q-Lens/AI for the V30's camera, supports Spanish for wireless emergency alerts, and improves the screen brightness for indoor environments.
