The LG G6, the company’s flagship device of last year, is finally getting a taste of Android Oreo.
As per the company’s press release, the LG G6 Android Oreo update will roll out first in its home country — South Korea. It will be available starting April 30 and will be distributed using the new LG Software Upgrade Center.
The said Software Upgrade Center is a particular body inside LG’s campus in South Korea, which has the main duty of providing software updates for all their devices. With this move, LG wants to reassure both of its existing and prospected customers that they will continue to support them even after the sale is done.
LG hasn’t provided us with a specific date about the update’s availability outside Korea — especially here in the Philippines. But we can surely expect it to come in the next couple of weeks.
With Android Oreo, updated devices will get a more efficient performance and improved interface. It will also come with new features like picture-in-picture, new emojis, notification dots, and many more. We can also expect it to have some AI-powered features, just like the ones seen on the LG’s ThinQ.
LG promised that the Android Oreo update will also arrive in the LG G5 and V20 — two smartphones released a year before the G6.
