LG Stylo 3 Plus: Oreo


Userlevel 2
I bought this phone from Koodo a few months ago. It came with Android 7.0 right out-of-the-box. Is there any word as to whether this phone will be getting updated to [b][i]Android 8 (Oreo)? If so, when can it be expected to be pushed out? Thanks.

You would have to contact LG Canada for the update (if they are coming)

In the Android world, because your devices can run Oreo, it doesn't mean you will get the update pushing from the carrier/manufacturer. They normally prioritize hi-end devices first. Even a quick search on google saying the Stylo will never be updated to Oreo :http://www.androidoreo.info/lg-phones-to-get-android-oreo-update.html

You could root the devices and go with custom Oreo ROM but you will void the warranty.

It doesn’t look like it’s in the plans for future software update yet: https://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/upcoming-software-updates

I believe that page no longer shows future updates but instead shows when the updates happened as it was renamed from "upcoming software updates" to "software update schedule".

I’ve checked the list a few days ago and it listed updates happening today. As future updates become known it will be posted there. The list also matches the Telus software update schedule https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility/Software-Update-Schedule/ta-p/53566, hopefully ours will be update to have November

Is that telus list official and fully updated for all devices? iOS has been updated to 11.0.3 but didn't show. Ipad Air 2 update is showed as "bug fix" on Oct 11? what? lol. It should be 11.0.3

Other Stylus 3 plus from other carriers already had the 8.0 update. So it's in Koodo side to make the update available...

@Pascal Bouillis: Which carrier is it? where did you get the information on the Stylus3 plus?

Absolutely ridiculous. If the phone can handle 8.0, then give it 8.0 or even higher if the phone can run it. To give it to one carrier and not the other doesn't make sense.

None of the carrier has updated it, as far as I know.
