There are three different brands featuring on the latest system update list from Verizon. These include the OnePlus 8 5G UW, the Motorola Moto G7 Power, Moto G6 Play and the LG G8 ThinQ.
Most of these updates relate to the latest Android security update patches for the respective devices. There are some performance improvements included in these as well.
OnePlus 8 5G UW
This is a Verizon special phone and the company has decided to add the UW suffix to it. The letters stand for ultra-wide indicating that the phone will be part of the mmWave 5G technology that the carrier is offering its customers with wider coverage. The phone has been released in the market only a few days back and is yet to reach many hands. The other model released with this is the OnePlus 8 Pro.
The Verizon system update page for this first update of the OnePlus 8 5G UW mentions ‘improved 5G connectivity’ and ‘improved premium visual voicemail message user experience’ as the changes being brought about. However, there are reports that there are other improvements also included in this update. These include the fix to remove the green tint on the display as well as some camera improvements. The March 2020 Android security update patch is also included in this Verizon system update for the OnePlus 8 5G UW.
