The LG G7 ThinQ is now receiving the stable Android Pie update
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.
