LG to begin Android Oreo update for G6 on April 30th, followed by V20 and G5

The company's new Software Upgrade Center is already at work


LG has announced the first Android update plans to come out of its newly created ‘Software Upgrade Center.’

As promised, the LG G6 now has an Android Oreo launch date — at least for Korea.

The handset will begin receiving the update this Monday, April 30th. Meanwhile, the LG V20 and LG G5 — launched in 2016 — will follow the G6, though LG doesn’t specify how closely.

In addition to Oreo, LG G6 users will also receive the AI features introduced with the LG V30S ThinQ.

It’s unclear exactly when Canadian carriers will begin rolling out the updates, as each operator’s own tests tacks on a little extra time. Regardless, it’s good to know the update is on its way.

“We will continue to provide stable and continuous after-sales services such as upgrading the OS and adding new functions to existing products,” said Lee Seok-su, CEO of the Software Upgrade Center at LG Electronics in a press statement.

“LG Smartphones can be trusted by customers who believe in long- I will try to make steady efforts. ”

The physical Software Upgrade Center, situated in LG’s research and development campus in Seoul, was launched to improve the pace at which it issues major software updates.

Android 8.0 Oreo delivers performance enhancements along with features like picture-in-picture  viewing, notification dots and autofill support.
