A new camera layout is also included. Unfortunately though, the update does not bring in the AI camera features that the V30+ received with Android Oreo. The update is currently available for all the LG G6 users in India. If you cannot see the notification for the OTA update, then you can manually check for it in the system settings.
In terms of specifications, the LG G6 features a 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it is powered by a Snapdragon 821 SoC coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery that comes equipped with Quick Charge 3.0.
