The latest update is that Sprint customers using the LG V30 will soon receive an upgrade which will bring Android 8.0 Oreo operating system to their smartphones.
LG V30 is one of the most popular flagship models right next to Samsung Galaxy S9 and Google Pixel 2 smartphones. The phone features a dual DAC setup which is primarily geared towards audiophiles who expect the best sound quality from a smartphone. It also uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and is available with all major carriers in the United States.
The LG phone was launched in Sprint with Android 7.0 as its default operating system which is now being upgraded to the latest version. The phone was expected to get the Android 8.0 update couple of months ago but it looks like the developers were not interested to bring it outside of South Korea for such a long time.
Sprint Update for LG V30
While the unlocked LG V30 model received the Android 8.0 Oreo update a month ago, the same update for the phone for all Sprint users is being rolled out now. The information has been confirmed using the screenshot of the settings page after the update is applied.
Users have confirmed to Android Police that they have received notifications to update their phone to the newest Android OS. The update size weighs in at a massive 1.7 GB and being a complete overhaul of the operating system, this file size is justifiable. The changelog is not available yet but it is speculated that the phone also includes March security patch for the Sprint LG V30.
