Today, LG opened its "LG OS Preview" for LG G7 ThinQ users in the brand's home region of South Korea which could signal that the phone maker is gearing up to push the Android Pie update in the coming weeks. Note that this update is different from the Pie update that rolled out on the Android One edition of the phone, which doens't have LG-branded software.
LG wasn't ever the best at providing quick updates for major Android releases. Today's news does show that LG is acting a bit quicker to...
Android 9.0 Pie has started rolling out to the LG G7 One in Canada, one user reports on XDA Forums. The firmware comes in at 800+ megabytes and includes the November security patch and camera functionality improvements.
Mind you, we're talking about the G7 One, which is part of the Android One program and therefore runs on stock Android, so updates should be quick and easy. Meanwhile, the fully customized G7 ThinQ's Pie build is still in development.
The LG V40 ThinQ could receive Android 9 Pie soon, as per a Geekbench entry.
A V40 ThinQ with 6GB of RAM was spotted running the benchmark with a test build of Android Pie aboard. It's not surprising that LG is testing the latest Android build on its latest Android flagship but it does mean the update could be close.
LG, not unlike Samsung, isn't the quickest in delivering the latest Android version to its phones. Currently only the LG G7 One is enjoying Android 9.0.
