LG V30 gets a taste of Oreo in South Korea sans Treble
After being in testing for close to a month, LG has finally released the stable Android 8.0 Oreo update for its flagship V30 handset in the South Korean market. Announcing the release of the update on its newsroom page, the manufacturer said that it has collected feedback from more than 500 customers involved in the Beta program to perfect the final release.
The ensuing update will bring in Oreo goodies such as Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, support for Sony's LDAC audio codec along with a host of performance, security, and battery life improvements. However, some users who have got the update reported on Reddit that Project Treble is not enabled in this release similar to the beta. This is in contrast to earlier reports that the V30 will get a Treble-enabled Oreo update. This is understandably a sore disappointment, given that LG is not the first OEM that comes to mind when it comes to timely software updates. Looks like LG will be following the footsteps of Samsung and OnePlus in this regard.
The update can be downloaded via OTA or by using the LG Bridge app on the PC. Rollout for other markets is expected to follow shortly.
