Oreo update for the  LG V30?

mike4843

    When will the V30 receive the Oreo update form last year?  I bought I high end phone thinking it would be supported for a while and it seems like it is not being supported at all.

        I remember that lg was attempting to beta test it for some us models of the phone. I have seen anything from LG though if they were fully going to release it on any of the carriers here.

          The LG V30/V30+ was added today to the Android Oreo updates listed in development: Software updates

            That's great, but there is zero detail about the update or a timeline.

             

            Also, LG's PR came out and said that we were going straight to 8.1 as well (source: https://goo.gl/iepUeo). Do you have a comment on that?

             

            Lastly, we just really want to know WHEN the Oreo update is going to be pushed out to our devices.

             

            Thank you,

              LG has never given a timeline.  So T-Mobile can never give you one as well.  So it comes down to when LG is done.

                Verizon just released their Oreo update for V30.  Obviously, LG is done now.

                When is TMobile releasing it?

                  When they are finished...  They do not work on one version for all their devices.  There are carrier specifics which LG needs to incorporate.  T-Mobile doesn't do this on their own, and have to wait for them to finish.

                    Yes i'm so tired of paying for flagship phones and not getting timely updates. These companies need to hire some developers. And provide a clear timeline. My next phone is whoever starts updating them regularly. Probably a Pixel but the last Pixel was not a great phone.

                      This will be the last time I purchase a carrier locked phone, if these updates aren't pushed out sooner from the carrier and manufacturer.  My LG V30 has been starving for this Android Oreo update.  At least with a factory unlocked phone, you get an unlocked boot loader, and you get more timely updates from the manufacturer.  I'm not knocking on T-Mobiles Network Service, but I think they really need to get there act together when it comes time for a firmware update.  I have to wait a year to get an Android 8.0 update?  Wtf?  A loyal T-Mobile Customer

                        Yeah it's looking more like LG blatantly lied about bringing 8.1 to the V30 here in the US. Verizon is getting 8.0 as we speak, I wouldn't blame T-Mobile for that. LG I guess sees Verizon to be a more important client than T-Mobile.

                        We were promised to be going directly to 8.1 from the CEO of LG's Mobile Division himself. I now see him as a liar, and that I will probably never buy another LG handset. We don't even have 8.0 and the V30's in Korea are getting an upgrade for the AI software in the ThinQ, they have had Oreo for months. The V30 in Japan is being sold under the V35 name and it had Oreo out of the box. This leads me to believe that LG no longer cares about the US market. It's sad, because the last 3 of my handsets were LG Flagships. I don't like Samsung. I think that I will have to find a new manufacturer. Too bad T-Mobile hasn't announced any plans to carry any of the Android One Flagships.

                          If they carried Android One flagships, we would get timely software updates. It's a new program by Google that certifies a phone that runs Vanilla Android and get timely updates for a few years

                            Yeah sadly the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are getting Oreo as I type

                                I have to agree with this.  Knowing that Oreo is in Manufacturer Development is fine and well, but give us time frames please?  Days?  Weeks?  Months?  I find it very difficult to believe that no one in T-Mobile receives status reports on updates of this importance.

                                  And now the Sprint V30 is receiving the Oreo 8.0 update.  Come on TMo!
