The LG V35 ThinQ is now receiving the Android Pie update in certain markets. The device, alongside the V40 ThinQ and V30 were scheduled to receive Pie this quarter, and we expect the two of them to get their share of Pie in the coming weeks. Users of the V20 will, of course, have to wait until Q3.

LG's software update policy is definitely on the poor side, and the company is usually the last among the mainstream big brands to send out major updates—although HTC looks to be vying for that title. The smartphone manufacturer is now sending out the Android Pie update to the LG V35, albeit only in its home country of South Korea.

South Korea is usually the first market to receive LG's software updates, so this isn't really surprising. The fact that a Korean rollout is ongoing generally means that users in Europe will get theirs in the coming weeks, with America expected to follow. The V35 was exclusive to AT&T at launch, so that may mean that users in the US get the update quicker than normal.

An update roadmap from a few weeks ago showed that LG has the V35, V30, and V40 scheduled for a Q2 roadmap. We expect both the V40 and V30 to start receiving Android Pie in the coming weeks.
