The update to Android Oreo for LG G6 has been confirmed, but it is not coming as soon as you might expect. Two months ago an unit of the smartphone has appeared on benchmarks with Android 8.0 Oreo installed, but this did not mean that the handset was going to be updated soon, at least in Europe. The Italian website of the company mentions that the update will arrive on the smartphone within the first half of the year, and this means that in the worst case we will get the update at the end of June.
On the same page, the website mentions that LG V30 will get Android Oreo in the first quarter of the year. Indeed, in some nations, the latest flagship launched by LG is already running the latest version of the operating system. Another confirmation about LG G6 has arrived on Twitter, from LG Italy’s official account. According to LG Italy on Twitter, the update for this device will arrive in the second quarter, that is the period which goes from April to June. LG G7 might go on sale before LG G6 gets updated to Android Oreo.
The update will obviously bring all the most important features of Android Oreo, which will improve the user experience a lot. Among these, there will be surely the picture-in-picture mode for multi-tasking, which will allow you to reduce app as small floating windows on the screen and keep them under control while you are doing other things. On its website, the company invites its customers to periodically check the mentioned page and LG Newsroom. In this way, you will always know when a new update is going to hit an LG phone and you will not miss anything about all the old and new devices of the company.
