LG is notorious for being late with software updates and it's been the same story with the Pie rollout. The company is actually keeping to its promise this time around, though, as the LG V40 ThinQ begins to receive the Android Pie update. The V30 and V20 are expected to get theirs in the coming months.

LG launched the V40 ThinQ about eight months ago, as a direct successor to the well-received V30 from 2017. The device was launched on Android Oreo, something of a disappointment considering Android Pie was months old already at that point. It is now receiving the update to Android Pie, and in the US, too.

The update is currently limited to Verizon models of the device, which is a pleasant surprise. Users of other carrier models can expect to get their taste of Pie in the coming weeks. The update comes as the software version V405UA20a and doubles up as the April security patch.

LG promised to deliver the Pie update to the V35, V30, and V40 this quarter, and it’s nice to see them keep to their word. The V35 already received the Pie update in certain regions last month, and the V30 will likely get its first taste of Pie sometime in June. The V20, of course, is scheduled for Q3, so users of that device will have to wait a while longer.
