LG Promises Faster Phone Updates, Starting with the G6
LG is making a renewed commitment to distributing software updates to its phones in a more timely manner. LG today said it officially opened a new Software Upgrade Center at its Magok-dong facility in South Korea. The Software Upgrade Center is charged with developing and delivering regular system updates to LG phones, as well as ensuring the user experience is consistent from device to device. LG has historically been slower than many of its rivals to release software updates, even for its flagship phones. "Stable and consistent upgrades will demonstrate to our customers that LG smartphones have long and reliable lifespans," said Mr. Jo Seong-jin, CEO of LG Electronics. The first initiative to come from LG's new Software Upgrade Center is to bring Android 8 Oreo to the LG G6. The update will reach G6 devices in Korea later this month with other key markets to follow. LG first launched the G6, a flagship phone, in February 2017.
The last twelve months have given us some of the most compelling smartphones ever made. New screen shapes, advanced cameras, and waterproof bodies have improved the everyday experience of those willing to fork over lots of cash for high-end handsets.
LG's flagship handset for the year is the gorgeous G6. It's a beautiful handset that packs an a amazing amount of technology into its slim frame.
The LG G6 is a strong offering from the Korean company that goes toe-to-toe with the best from Apple and Samsung. The G6 features a gorgeous design, the best materials, a waterproof chassis, and killer cameras.
Can't decide between the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8? It's a tough choice, to be sure.
