LG V20 receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Back in late April this year, South Korean tech giant LG announced the roll-out of Android 8.0 Oreo update for LG G6. And, at that time, the company had also announced that it would start rolling out the Oreo update for G5 and V20 soon. Well, after almost three months from that announcement, LG has finally started rolling out the Oreo update for LG V20.


The update is rolling out over-the-air and weighs more than 1.6 GB in size. It carries version number 20c and probably comes along with Android’s July security patch as well. The Android 8.0 Oreo update is rolled out for LG V20 that carries model number F800L, F800K and F800S.
