Days after the LG G5 began receiving its update to Android 8.0, another former LG flagship is getting an Oreo treat.

T-Mobile is now updating its LG V20 to Android 8.0 Oreo. The update to version H91820f is now rolling out over the air, coming in at 1691.2MB. To check for it, you can go into Settings > About phone > Update Center > System updates > Check for update.

As for what’s included, you LG V20 owners are getting a bump to Android Oreo, which comes with goodies like picture-in-picture, notification dots when an app has an unread alert for you, and smart text selection that’ll recognize text that you tap or select and recommend a next logical step via a suggested app.

Other features of this LG V20 update include the August 1, 2018 Android security patches and “various system improvements”.

The LG V20 is nearing its second birthday, and so it’s exciting to see the device continue to get some love in the form of a major Android OS update. If you’ve got an LG V20, go grab your Oreo treat and be sure to come back here and let us know how the update is working for you!

Thanks, Damian, MVSGeek, and Marco!

    Installing now. This is the first time I read about an update, and then just turned around and check for it and there it was.

    This is the best example of why never to buy a locked down(or even just hard to unlock) phone(Stylo, ZTE).
    It’s very nice to see this update– but Android 9 is already out. The dev community can port the latest Android, the apps from later models, increase or enable hardware features, sideload needed carrier firmware, fix unsolved bugs from carrier or manufacturer, etc.
    Samsung flagships another example– fiddle with your phone and lose Samsung Pay.
    Speaking of, still waiting on LG Pay to come this way.

      Yeah the lgv30 dropped 2 months after v8 came out and it was on v7, then waited for 4 almost 5 months to get v8. Still do not have v8.1 less than 30 days till its 1 year old and nothing still. I’ve heard all of the excuses regarding updates…its lg’s fault..its tmobiles fault.. I call BS! just freaking put the updates out there stop jacking with them hacking etc. No matter its my last lg device and certainly my last purchased phone thru tmobile. they can suck blood money out of some other fool. this fool is leaving the party.

        To be fair though, the V20 WAS the first Android phone to get 7.0. Even before the Pixel line lol

        I hear you. I’m ok as long as the phone is unlocked. I don’t want to be at the mercy of Google, the carrier, or manufacturer delaying update, or worse– arbitrarily disabling some feature.
        If the root don’t fit,
        you musta quit.
        OR, Confucius say:
        No lutee, no buyee.
        He who buys a locked down phone
        suffers the same fate as
        he who marries a bride with a chastity belt
        but whose father refuses to turn over the key.

      Might as well skip android 8 and got straight to 9.
      Or skip upgrading altogether and just send v20 owners $100 rebate good towards any LG upgrade.

    Got it today while in the middle of a theme park. Can’t wait to download later.

  • George Salcedo

    I’m hoping the V30 gets the next major Android update as well.

    It’s been great so far, It actually seems to have improved my battery life and thing work a little quicker now. The only glitch I’m having is with the Google Calendar app. Not a deal breaker! Pretty happy so far.
