LG has officially unveiled the V30, the successor to last year’s V20. While in the past the V line differed from the G series with higher-end hardware and a different design, this year, the V30 follows in the G6’s footsteps. What this means is a large FullVision display which features limited amounts of bezel and an all-glass build. The handset improves upon the G6 though as it features new videography features, a high-quality audio DAC, and more.

LG V30 picking up Android Oreo update on T-Mobile and unlocked variants

LG’s Android smartphones have gotten better and better over the years, but one of the more exciting developments came from last year’s V30, which was the company’s first with an OLED display.

LG V30 on Verizon Wireless picks up its Android Oreo update

Android Oreo’s expansion has been kind of pathetic. Well over 100 days after its public release on the Pixel, most OEMs still haven’t updated their devices. LG started an Oreo rollout for the V30 a few weeks ago, and today that expands to the US with an update for Verizon customers.
