The LG G7 ThinQ is now receiving the Android Pie update globally
The LG G7 ThinQ was released about a year ago and has, like most LG devices, suffered from anemic software updates. The flagship was launched on Android Oreo, and is now only just starting to get the update to Android Pie.
Back in January, users of the LG G7 ThinQ in LG's home South Korea started receiving the Pie update. We expected a global rollout to begin around March but LG has a reputation for not living up to expectations, so here we are.
The update is rolling out to users of the device across Europe. Users of the US Verizon model have also confirmed receipt of the OTA. The update weighs in at around 1.4 GB and doubles up as the May security patch. It brings a number of new features including gesture controls, dual app functionality, battery saving.
It's unknown when other US carrier models will start to send out the update but we expect it to happen before the month runs out.
