LG Electronics on Tuesday said it has started updating LG V30 smartphones to the latest version of the Android operating system Oreo. The official update comes after the South Korean tech giant launched a preview programme in November that allowed selected users to test the Oreo beforehand and provide feedback, Yonhap news agency reported.

LG said it gathered 500 opinions, which would help the company provide more optimised services to V30 users. Users could make updates by clicking on the notification on the smartphone or by connecting the device to the LG Bridge programme on PCs.

Android Oreo comes with improved performance in terms of speed and battery life. The picture-in-picture feature also allows users to enjoy videos and run another application at the same time. The LG V30, released in South Korea in September, is the company's latest premium smartphone and boasts a top-notch dual-lens rear camera system and audio capabilities. The company at that time had said the device would be launched in European countries like Germany, Spain and Poland by the end of December.

The launch would be the first time for LG to release a V-series smartphone through European mobile carriers. In India, the company launched "V30+" smartphone for Rs 44,990 earlier this month.

The device sports a 6-inch QHD+ display with aspect ratio of 18:9. 'LG V30+' is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and is rated IP68 water and dust resistant.

It also has 4GB RAM, 128GB onboard storage and a 3,300mAh battery. The phone comes with a built-in "Hi-Fi Quad DAC", with sound tuning by B&O Play. After running a simple 'Do It Yourself' data recovery software available online, huge amounts of data contained in the files was recovered in a short period.

In one such hard disk drive, the comprehensive business details of an automotive showroom, including monthly sales, historical sales records, pricing list, feedback forms and complete customer information comprising names, addresses and contact numbers was identified.

In another case, complete personal information comprising name, age, PAN card details, date of birth, phone contact list, bank statement, credit card statements, personal photographs, software, music and videos were recovered.

The study also highlighted that not only are individuals at risk for identity theft and leakage of sensitive personal information but also the companies are at an increased business risk and financial risk as well.

Erasing data using a regulatory compliance software is a sustainable technique over physically destroying the storage media, said Stellar Data Recovery.
