Fortnite is starting to arrive to many Android devices starting today, so this would be a good time to check your e-mail to see if your invitation is there
One Canadian carrier "expects" to start the official Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the LG V20 next month, which probably means others will do the same.
T-Mobile is the last of the big four carriers to update the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and LG G6 to Oreo, also sending security patches to the Note 5 and S8 Active.
After Verizon and Sprint, AT&T is now officially rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the LG G6, with the phone's US unlocked variant also brought up to date.
Roughly a month after the LG G6 started receiving Oreo goodies in Korea, Sprint follows Verizon with the "Now Network's" own over-the-air Android 8.0 promotion.
LG had to rearrange a whole bunch of interface pieces for this update to last year's big flagship and that may have contributed to the filesize of this OTA.
70,000 reservations in six days is certainly a promising start for the LG G7 ThinQ in Korea, beating the initial popularity of the G6, but the hard part is yet to come for the company's newest flagship phone.
LG is truly intent on letting its customers know just how much it is obsessed with artificial intelligence on its smartphones, new and old.
The official price tag of the LG G7 ThinQ remains under wraps both in the US and Canada, but up north, we now know pre-orders will include complimentary 4K UHD smart TVs.
The AI-infused LG G7 ThinQ is slightly more affordable in Korea than the G6 a year ago, sparking hopes of a US MSRP circling $700.
The official Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the 2017-released LG G6 flagship phone will begin in just a few days in Korea, while the V20 and G5 continue to wait.
High-end Android smartphones with 4GB RAM are still a thing, as proven by a recent LG G7 ThinQ benchmark. But of course, a 6 gig variant could also be in the pipeline.
That iPhone X-inspired notch is almost unnoticeable in the latest ev-leaked LG G7 ThinQ render, but look carefully and you'll see it's not that small.
LG figures it's worth the cost and the space at its new campus in Seoul to dedicate a team to software updates for its products like its smartphones.
According to respected market research firm Strategy Analytics, both the Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are better in battery performance than the LG G6, iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9.
The LG G7 is reportedly not only real and coming soon, but planned in two variants, with both a cost-cutting LCD and high-quality OLED screen.
The LG G7 may not be canceled after all, and it could end up looking extremely similar to that prototype showcased behind closed doors at MWC 2018.
This is not the world's fastest Android 8.0 Oreo update, but because we're talking about Verizon, LG V30 owners should probably consider themselves lucky.
If the LG V30, G6 and Huawei P10 Plus can finally get official, stable Android 8.0 Oreo updates on Canada's Fido network this month, you have to presume global rollouts are right around the corner.
Android Oreo is slowing moving out to some LG G6 units currently, but it's nice to know that this extra iteration will get wider reach.
Conflicting reports of different LG G7 release timelines continue to come in, with that "upgraded" V30 likely to see daylight at MWC 2018 sans fanfare.
Both the high-end LG G6 and mid-range Q6 are expanding their color options with Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet, while the former is also getting a Raspberry Rose flavor.
The two carriers are at each other's throats with big credit doles and new phones to give out. Which will you side with? Or are these deals just dumb?
