While this version of Android Oreo for the LG V30 does include security updates up to the February 1 patch, the update only bumps the Android version of the phone to 8.0.0, despite a version 8.1 already available for some time now. Since this is a major Android platform update the file size is quite large at 1.7GB so users will certainly want to connect their device to a good Wi-Fi network before they download the update. Both the Xperia R1 and Xperia R1 Plus share nearly identical specs and differ only in terms of storage and RAM. The Xperia R1 comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage, while the Xperia R1 Plus packs 3GB RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage.
