It appears that LG has started working on a beta form for Android 8.0 Oreo for Chinese clients.
Which models is Android Oreo compatible with?
Just to remind you, the LG G6 was said to appear in the first 6 months of 2017, with Android 7.0 Nougat as the operating system. That good guy that told the world that an Android 8.0 Oreo beta is currently worked on, also said that the update is going to be compatible with these model numbers:
LGM-G600L, LGM-G600S, LGM-G600K, LGM-G600LR, LGM-G600SR, LGM-G600KR, LGM-G600LP, LGM-G600SP, and LGM-G600KP.
This product has a ‘V19A’ tag, however, we still not sure of what this update means for our smartphones. Of course, this update isn’t just about bringing Android 8.0 to LG G6. but it additionally has various features of Android 8.0 Oreo, even if the LG’s skin is already installed. As a major aspect of this thing, beta analyzers in China will get to work with the Picture-in-Picture feature and with the ‘Warning Dots’. This update also means a new settings screen for the LG G6. Adaptive icons will also make their appearance. A few changes for notifications are additionally included here, and we’re sure there are much more waiting for us.
Is it China or North Korea, though?
The fact that the beta version was announced leaves the impression that the full version is set to arrive at the party in the following weeks.
It is said that the Chinese LG G6 models will get the last form of Android 8.0 Oreo in the following weeks, while the others will come soon after.
On seconds thought, South Korea might be the one that will firstly receive the final form of Android Oreo for LG G6. But we cannot say anything for sure because the company hasn’t made an official statement just yet. You and us together, we’ll have to wait and see.
