LG V30 Oreo update to have Treble, unlocked version now available
The LG V30 received its first taste of Oreo a few days ago, with users in South Korea getting an update after joining the beta testing program. Hours after the beta update was sent out, enthusiasts confirmed that the build did not have Treble implemented, as ADB checks pulled negative results. A customer rep, cutting against the grain, however, declared that the Oreo update for the device would have Treble support.
Of course, customer reps aren't exactly the most accurate of information sources, as they really have no idea about the things they say most of the time—they aren't in the position to. The statement is sure to keep V30 users in the optimistic lane, though, as while the current beta may not have Treble support, there's nothing that says future builds will not.
There have also been rumors of the G6 and V20 receiving Oreo and, while we wouldn't get our hopes up over that, Treble on the V30 may mean the aforementioned devices also get Treble support, something that's sure to further boost the stock of two of the best bang-for-buck last-gen devices on the market.
Meanwhile, the unlocked LG V30 finally became available today. The device can be grabbed over on B&H for $819.99. Do note that LG's already poor update practices are even worse with unlocked versions of their devices.
