During the last week, LG started to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta update for some units of the LG V20 manufactured in South Korea. Today the company is starting to expand the availability of Google cookie to some eligible devices inside the United States.
If you are a Sprint client and still rocks an LG V20, we have some good news! Starting today, the network provider is rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update through OTA channels for all its supported LG V20 handsets. The update is labeled as LS99720a and carries the OPR1.170623.032 build number. Despite the fact that this update still is based on Android 8.0, it carries the Google’s July Security Patch.
The update contains all the goodies introduced by Google with the Oreo version, that includes the picture-in-picture mode, notification channels, autofill API and more. Worth mentioning that LG also has prepared its own set of features to introduce on this update for the LG V20.
Since this update is being rolled out over the air, it may take some time to arrive for all Sprint LG V20 owners. Currently, there’s no schedule indicating when the company will unveil the update for all LG V20 smartphones.
