Users are usually notified when an update is ready, but they can also check by going into the Settings applet and into the System Update screen. The carrier will eventually release the update for other compatible LG handsets as well down the road. Now, it is known that the latest version of Android has already been released from quite some time by Google and this version has been named as Android 8.0 Oreo. It also adds reminders for unfinished tasks such as emails and messages.

After rolling out Android Oreo for V30 users in South Korea over two months ago, recent reports suggest that LG is now also beginning to provide owners in the United States with the long-awaited update.

Firstly, several users are posting about the Wi-Fi SSD issue after the update and secondly, the update is making several third-party apps to crash. Users should also expect to see some user interface improvements as well. That is, if you bought your phone from Verizon. These two phones were launched exclusively for the Indian market back in October a year ago, and Sony had promised an Android Oreo update for the two at launch. They both packed similar features, but the difference is in the storage and RAM options.

The Xperia R1 Plus is backed by a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while the R1 features a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The dual SIM handsets now run Android Oreo, and sport 5.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) TFT displays. Internally, the phones are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, and a 13MP camera is present at the back, followed by the 8MP shooter on the front. There is a 2620mAh battery backing internals on both the phones.
