The LG G5 H850 (GBR) Oreo Update is software version H85030A. LG G5 H850 (GBR) Users should be able to upgrade their phones to Android Oreo 8.1 via OTA or LG Bridge.

The Vodafone UK variant of the LG G5 H850 received the Oreo Update in October, and the LG G5 H850 from VIRGIN MOBILE, O2, HUTCHISON, and EE have not received the Oreo Update yet.

Usually, Carriers need time to add their own bloatware onto LG’s official firmware, that is why the carrier branded phones receive an update later than others.
