LG creates Software Upgrade Center, announces G6 Oreo update

LG G6 colors leak

LG is working hard to speed up software updates for its customers. Its latest step in the quest for faster updates takes the form of a new Software Upgrade Center at its R&D campus in Seoul, South Korea. This center will design and develop software updates for LG smartphones, as well as constantly testing the compatibility and stability of software updates after they’ve been released. One of the major goals for this center is to provide a consistent software experience for LG customers around the world. Currently, there’s quite a bit of variation between countries in terms of software updates.

The first task for the center is rolling out the Android Oreo update to last year’s flagship, the LG G6. Oreo will begin rolling out to G6 users in Korea this month, with other markets following.

Fragmentation and slow software updates have traditionally been pain points for Android devices. Though LG likely won’t be able to solve these issues, its renewed focus on updates will hopefully provide a better experience for customers. And of course, we’re all hoping for faster updates.
