LG released its G7 flagship back in May last year. The device was launched on Android 8.0 Oreo—when 8.1 was already available—and is currently receiving the stable Pie update in certain regions; namely the company’s home South Korea.

LG’s software updates are usually one of the iffiest, and it’s almost impressive that the company is sending out the update already, five months after Pie was released. Most major OEMs already rolled out the Pie update to their current gen flagships back in November or early December. Better late than never, in any case, and we’re sure G7 users will agree.

The update to Android 9 brings most of the Pie specific features and also a few OEM features. See image at the bottom for the official changelog. The OTA weighs in at a petite 1.35 GB.

It’s unknown when G7 units in Europe and North America will get their own taste of Pie but we expect a gradual rollout over the next two months.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
