LG and Verizon have begun rolling out Android 9.0 Pie to the V40 ThinQ on the latter’s network. This marks the second time a Pie upgrade was rolled out to an LG phone in the US, following the LG G7 One’s upgrade earlier this year.
The update includes the usual suite of Pie features including new navigation gestures, better notification controls, better privacy, upgraded downtime features, and more. It weighs a good amount so you’ll want to make sure you’re on a stable Wi-Fi network before installing.
While this is exciting news, it’s nothing really to rave about besides the fact some V40 owners are getting Pie. In fact, that’s what sucks. Only some V40 owners in the entire country are beginning to receive Pie, a version of Android that’s been out for nine months at this point. LG simply doesn’t care about software updates for its phones, and today’s news shows that.
