LG’s software update speed sucks is quite commonly known. Maybe owing to this the company decided to set up a dedicated software update center in its home country.

Well, whether the update center bore any fruit or not, it cant be inferred now because it was set up when the Android Oreo was already more than half a year old. The speed with which the company rolls out the Android Pie update to its devices would determine whether it was of any use or not.

Moving ahead of this, LG has started the rollout of the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the LG G6, LG’s last years’ first flagship offering, users.

LG had earlier started the rollout of the LG Oreo update for the LG V30+ in India, their second flagship for 2017. The update brought AI capabilities to the device and gave it the LG V30 ThinQ branding.

The LG G6 Oreo update also brings AI capabilities to the device, thereby giving it the ThinQ branding also.

The update carries the build number OPRR1.170623.032. It has a size of 1816.61 MB and along with Android Oreo comes with July Security Patch dated 1st July 2018.

Some of the features that are included in the update are:

A Comfort View, a blue light filter with up to 10 levels of adjustments. Furthermore, it also gives the ability to hide navigation buttons while using the app. The icon shape has got some new options also.

There is a new option where there is one place to manage all the notifications of an app and the display of the notification panel has also been altered with support for notification badge also.

Furthermore, there are the usual improvements in performance and several bug fixes also.

The update is being rolled out as an OTA update and the availability may vary by a few days.
