LG confirmed that the G6 would start receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update at the end of April and fulfilled its promise when the smartphone received the update in South Korea. Now, a few weeks later, LG G6 also began receiving this Android 8.0 Oreo update in the United States through the Verizon carrier.
According to what has been revealed, users who own LG G6 connected to Verizon carrier can now download Android 8.0 Oreo. The update weighs approximately 1.9 GB and brings a lot of new features to the smartphone, including the April security package, which makes your device more secure.
Among other things, this update also takes the LG G6 into a picture-in-picture mode that allows users to use other applications while watching a YouTube video. The notification center also appears to have received changes that made it more intuitive and clean for users.
The highlight feature on this new LG flagship smartphone is its 5.7-inch FullVision display with QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) resolution with an 18:9 (or 2:1) aspect ratio instead of the industry standard (16:9). It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of internal storage which can be further expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB).
On the camera front, it has a dual-camera setup at the rear end with two 13-megapixel sensors – one for wide-angle shots with 125-degree lens and f/2.4 aperture, and the other for regular shots with 71-degree lens and OIS 2.0. For selfie, it features a 5-megapixel wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and 100-degree lens. It is also the first smartphone with Dolby Vision support at the time of its launch. It features a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) for enhanced audio playback as well. The phone packs a fingerprint scanner at the back as well. Another distinction is that it has passed the MIL-STD 810G military standard certification for durability.
