LG V30 Android Oreo Update Rolls Out for Verizon Users

Sony Xperia R1 Android Oreo update

Android 8.0 Oreo Update Rolling Out to the Sony Xperia R1 and R1 Plus Smartphones in India

Apart from the core features, FoneArena reports the update also introduces some new features such as reminders for unfinished tasks such as saved email drafts and messages, contextual menus for app shortcuts, as well as new Xperia actions.

According toDroidLife, the update is Oreo 8.0 (not 8.1) and it comes in at a fairly hefty 1702.3 MB.

Sony launched the Xperia R1 and R1 Plus in India past year in October with Android 7.1 Nougat running out of the box.

Sony needs to address these issues with a new software update, however, the company is yet to accept these issues. It will bring all the expected Oreo features to the V30 such as picture-in-picture mode, smart text selection, and improved notification settings. Additionally, some users have since reported issues like app crashes and touch unresponsiveness after updating to Oreo. Unfortunately, the update only includes the January security patch and not the latest one from March or even February. The update is now being rolled out over-the-air and will soon go live for users in all regions across the country. They both packed similar features, but the difference is in the storage and RAM options. Coming to the specifications, the smartphones feature a 5.2-inch HD display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

Have you received the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade on your Verizon-branded LG V30? They are powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC.

On the camera front, both the devices feature 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, Exmor Sony sensor, 8x digital zoom and LED flash. Both phones are backed by a 2620mAh capacity battery, which is slightly on the smaller side when compared to their competition. On the connectivity front, both of them supports, 4G VoLTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, WiFi and dual-SIM support.
