LG released the Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the LG V30 in South Korea a couple of weeks ago. The company didn’t confirm at that time precisely when the beta firmware would be released in other markets like the United States. The wait is now over for interested users in the United States as LG has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta in the United States.
LG appears to be rolling out the beta firmware for the LG V30 gradually in the United States. At least one V30 owner has confirmed receiving said update on their unlocked model. The beta firmware that LG is rolling out comes with the January 2018 security maintenance release which includes all of the latest security patches from Google.
It may be a while before the Android 8.0 Oreo beta is rolled out to other users. LG is yet to confirm if the beta firmware is going to be released in any other markets. Those who own an international variant of the handset have particularly been waiting for this update to arrive.
LG hasn’t detailed its Oreo roadmap at this point in time so it’s too soon to assume when it’s going to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update for all LG V30 users across the globe. Hopefully, it will do that sooner rather than later.
