Owners of the LG V30 have been met with a bit of good fortune today. After an initial promise to receive Android 8.1 Oreo, LG has begun rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to the V30 over Verizon’s network. While it’s not the latest and greatest by any means, it’s at least a lot newer than what’s now nearly a two-year-old operating system.

We’re still digging around the update on our V30 unit, but it looks like some aspects of the UI such as the notification pane and settings app have received design tweaks. HDR video compatibility, more versatile Bluetooth 5 options, and better performance are also included in the update package.

Verizon has yet to publish full details surrounding the V30’s Oreo upgrade, but we’ll let you know when they do. Until then, go check your phone.
