LG V30+, the flagship smartphone from the South Korean company, is getting a minor rebranding in India. The 2017 flagship V-series smartphones, the V30 and V30+, were launched at IFA 2017 last year. The company only launched the LG V30+ smartphone in India and it is now rebranding the device to call it LG V30+ ThinQ.
While the smartphone shipped with Android 7.1 Nougat, the smartphone is now getting updated to Android Oreo. The LG V30 first started receiving Android Oreo update in South Korea last year but the company has taken several months to push out the update to other markets. The carrier variants to the smartphone received the update few months ago in the US while the unlocked variants started getting the update in May.
