Android 8.0 Oreo is headed to the LG G6 – here’s what you need to know

LG has announced that the much-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update is headed to the LG G6, its current flagship smartphone, and will begin rolling out in at least one market at the start of the week commencing April 30.

The firm revealed on April 27 that it will start rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for all variants of the LG G6 in South Korea starting April 30, with it scheduled to reach other markets – including the UK and US – soon thereafter.

LG noted that the upgrade, which will be available both over-the-air and as a manual install using LG Bridge, will bundle a number of the AI camera features that debuted on the two-month-old LG V30S ThinQ, such as AI Cam and QLens.

The release will also come with all the standard goodies baked into Android 8.0 Oreo – support for Adaptive Icons, Circular Emoji, Android Instant Apps, Notification Channels, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Vitals, to name but a few.

Those eligible for the update – or, in other words, LG G6 owners who reside in South Korea – can check to see if it’s ready for their handset by navigating into Settings, selecting About Device, then tapping Download Updates Manually. 

We’ll keep our eyes peeled and report back as soon as the upgrade starts making the rounds in other regions, so be sure to keep your browser pointed to Trusted Reviews for all the latest on the Android 8.o Oreo update for the LG G6.
