A version too much previous
To get access to the beta test, V30 owners in the region can register through the Quick Help application by tapping on the LG Operating System Preview banner. According to LG, the final software update should arrive in a month and the company does not seem to be limiting invitations to an established number.
Participants of Android 8.0 for the LG V30 will begin to receive the update next month and, as with other manufacturers, may send comments and opinions using the same application, which LG will monitor before the official release. Unfortunately, it seems that the owners of LG’s other flagship, the LG G6, miss the preview program no matter what country they live in.
The launch of this LG program comes just after Samsung launched its own preview of Android 8.0 Oreo for a select few owners of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus in the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea. It is expected that both models receive stable versions of the operating system before the end of the year.
