What's happened to the Oreo update for LG G5 RS988?

Lots of other G5 models have gotten the update, but for some reason, the RS988, which is unlocked and so doesn't need carrier permission or approval, still hasn't gotten an update.

Why does LG make so many variations of the same phone? Like, the RS988 doesn't have FM radio but some do and some don't. It's not only frustrating as a customer - but it causes massive difficulties updating your products to newer firmware.

I like the G5 a lot, but honestly, if this is how LG does engineering (ie: badly).. I think that it's the last LG phone I'll be buying - or any LG product to be honest. I'm an engineer and I'd be ashamed if I did my work this way.
