LG V30+ becomes V30 ThinQ in India with Oreo update that brings along AI Camera

After seven months from the launch, the V30 ThinQ is finally receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update in India

South Korean tech giant LG launched the LG V30 and V30+ last year in August. And later in December, LG launched the V30+ in India. The V30 and V30+ are same smartphones that only differ in terms of internal storage. The former comes with 64 GB of internal storage whereas the latter comes with 128 GB of internal storage. Everything else is same across both the smartphones. That said, the V30+ was launched in India with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and, after seven months from the launch, it is finally receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update.


LG on Twitter has announced that it has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the V30+ in India. LG also says that this Oreo update turns the V30+ to V30 ThinQ as it comes with AI-based camera features that are found on recently announced ThinQ branded LG smartphones like the G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ.

The Oreo update for the V30+ is rolling out over-the-air and could take at least a couple of days to reach all the units in India. However, if you can’t wait for the update notification to pop-up on your smartphone, you can check for it manually by heading over to the Settings menu. If you still don’t get it, then you can go visit the nearest LG Store to upgrade your V30+ with Android 8.0 Oreo.

While this Oreo update does brings in AI Camera feature from ThinQ series smartphones to the V30+, it also changes the branding in the UI from V30+ to V30 ThinQ. Well, LG was not kidding when it said the V30+ becomes V30 ThinQ with this Oreo update.
