    Does anyone have any insight into if / when we can expect an Oreo update for the G6?

    I was sure hoping LG finally got on the update bandwagon after the few early updates they sent out but it's really starting to look like they're going back to their old ways 😡

    Not that soon. I've read stories that it will come somewhere around Valentine's day. Some say it won't come up until April. 😳😵

    I just saw the T-Mobile Oreo software update page and there is not a single LG phone on it. Not even the V30!

    that site is so far behind, i dont even pay attention to it. on a side note AC ran a story a while about about an 8.0 beta seen running in china, so its possible we could get it sometime this year. (at least i hope).

    The T-Mobile Nougat update page was on point the whole time. That's the only reason I was surprised not to see LG included. The HTC life's Oreo update was listed on the page.

    I sent T-Mobile a tweet. Maybe they'll send me a reply.

    All the T-Mobile Twitter guy would say was that LG phones WILL get Oreo, but it's a slow processor.

    HTC life was there, and it did reflect that it had already been through the whole update cycle

    Dumping the G7 and leaving their future phone strategy as a mystery was a terrible step back after the progress LG made with the G6.

    they made a ton of progress with the g6 but it got overshadowed by the s8. its odd that they made that decision to scrap the previous version of the g7 but it sounded more like the new management giving the finger to the previous management. i hope they do not do anything drastic to the g6's successor.

    i guess we have to wait until the MWC to see what LG brings but i'm sure both G6 and V30 will see O this year, it's just we need to wait a bit.

    Patiently waiting for Oreo on the ATT LG G6.

    After seeing what could be done with the Google Pixel 2 camera apk on the G6, I sure hope LG was able to make some improvements in terms of speed and image processing.

    if this is actually true and not someone tweeting out of turn, then hopefully the american carriers will not be far behind

    It seems no matter which phone I chose (aside from Pixel, obviously), every other phone manufacturer/carrier releases the latest OS update well before my phone receives.

    Crossing my fingers this is true. LG G6 on T-Mobile.

    Seriously...me too! If LG is giving up trying to release flagship devices once or twice a year, I sure hope they give some of that attention to existing models!

    I hope so too. I like my G6, but I'd like it even more if I knew it was getting timely updates. I bought the Moto X PE because of the reputation the original Moto X earned with fast updates when it was owned by the Goog. Lenovo burned me. LG better not. I needs my Oreo!

    Yeah Moto really dropped the ball with the Moto x pe. I've sworn them off since then.

    Sadly since then I just assume my phone won't be updated and just try to enjoy them as is. Constantly waiting for updates is no way to live.

    I do hope Oreo makes this thing snappier because right now it seems super sluggish at times.

    Just catching up on the G6 forums (not here often). After reading the tweet droidman posted above, I checked Fido's site (my carrier in Canada) and they now have Oreo listed as "coming soon" for the G6. So, good news there.
