LG, as we know, doesn’t have a good record for pushing OTA updates or even Android OS upgrades. LG does make some exceptional hardware phones. However, it is nothing without a good software and regular security updates. Software is also very important when it comes to making the most out of a phone’s hardware. LG is trying hard and rolling out Oreo updates for several previous flagship phones including the LG G5.
LG is getting into the update game. We have already seen Oreo update for LG V30, LG G6, and LG V20 in the last couple of months. The Android 8.0 Oreo firmware update now comes to LG G5. It is however, only available in South Korea for the Korean variants like the F700S/K/L. The Oreo OTA update now features a new build number F700S30d.
The KDZ for LG G5 F700 is now available for download below. Soon other variants of LG G5 H850 (Europe); LG G5 Speed H858 (Taiwan); VS987 (Verizon); H820 (AT&T); LS992 (Sprint); H830 (T-Mobile); US992 (US Cellular); Vodafone will start receiving the same. So stay tuned for we will update the download links here.
