The LG V20 came out in 2016. Like almost all Android smartphones, the handset was guaranteed to receive two years of major Android releases. Android 8.0 Oreo will be the final platform update that this handset gets. LG started rolling it out for the V20 some time back and Sprint is finally seeding it to LG V20 owners on its network.
LG started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the V20 in South Korea last week. It was a clear indication that the handset would soon receive the update in other markets across the globe as well.
The first we got word about the Oreo update for the LG V20 was in April when the company merely confirmed that it would eventually release the update for the device later this year. It’s rolling out Oreo for the V20 almost three months after the initial confirmation.
Sprint is now rolling out firmware build OPR1.170623.032 for the LG V20 in the United States. In addition to all of the features that are part and parcel of the Oreo update, the firmware release comes with the security patch for the month of July 2018.
The carrier is gradually rolling out the Oreo update for the V20 on its network. It may take a while for the update to go live for all users on the network.
