Now, it is known that the latest version of Android has already been released from quite some time by Google and this version has been named as Android 8.0 Oreo. As promised, the rollout of the software update began last week for all eligible handsets. The country's largest mobile carrier has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the LG V30 on its network. As such, they would be the first V30 users in the region to be able to download the latest Android version and discover the new features in it including the improved notifications, picture-in-picture multitasking, and more. Sony doesn't heavily customize the user interface on their smartphones but you might get some icons and some settings which will be different from the stock Android OS.

A fully redesigned emoji set, one that now adds 60 new emoji, also comes with the Android Oreo update for the LG V30, which has been rolled out for Verizon users last Friday, March 9.
