It looks like LG’s 2017 flagship smartphones, the G6 and V30, will both soon receive an upgrade to Android 8.1 Oreo. This week, Google announced the Android Enterprise Recommended program that recommends Android smartphones to enterprises, and both of LG’s phones are a part of it. However, a requirement to be on the list is ensuring your phones will get upgraded to the latest version of Android, and that’s just what LG will be doing.
LG Electronics USA, Inc. today announced that the LG V30 and LG G6 premium smartphones available in the United States will earn “Android Enterprise Recommended” approval in a new Google-led program, following an upgrade to Android 8.1.
As a part of the program, all users of the G6 and V30 can expect Android 8.1 on their devices in the near future. LG is also guaranteeing security patches for the phones will be delivered within 90 days from each other. Of course, not all users will get these updates at the same time due to carrier support varying from company to company but expect to at least receive the updates soon.
What makes this news especially interesting is the fact that LG’s been testing Android 8.0 Oreo for the G6 and V30 in other parts of the world. I assume this testing phase will end and LG will move right over to Android 8.1, although things remain uncertain.
We’ll let you know when we get more news surrounding this update in the future.
