LG V40 ThinQ Gets Android Pie in the US
LG's Android Pie rollout has been mostly lacklustre. Not a lot of devices are already running the OS and the ones that are received the update a long time after Android Pie hit the airwaves. Today the company has started rolling out its second Pie upgrade to the LG V40 ThinQ in the US, on Verizon.
LG V40 ThinQ users on Verizon Wireless can expect the Android Pie upgrade to hit their devices starting today. So far, this seems to be the only variant of the device in the US to get the update, but it’s notable because it’s the first Pie update the company has made available in the United States. The only Android Pie upgrade LG has managed to push out before this one is for the LG V35 ThinQ in Korea. Here's the full changelog:
The update bears build version V405UA20a comes with the April security patch. It includes the standard Android Pie goodies such as navigation gestures, using the volume keys for media by defaul and more. It also brings some improvements to LG apps such as the camera. One can download the update OTA or connect your device to a computer with Internet access. Connect your device to your computer using your USB cable, then download the Software Upgrade Assistant tool to your computer, which will check for software updates and initiate the software update process.
