It's taken a long time, but LG G7 ThinQ finally has Android Pie in Europe, US

LG G7 owners in Europe and the U.S. are reporting Android Pie's availability, almost 10 months after it was first released.

LG tends to lag behind most manufacturers when it comes to issuing updates around the world, and the LG G7 ThinQ is no exception. The phone received Android Pie in South Korea back in January, and it looks like the update is finally coming to more users.

According to members of the XDA-Developers forum and the G7 subreddit, the update is now available in the likes of Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland, the U.K., and the U.S.

LG hasn’t made an official statement regarding regional/carrier availability just yet, but you might want to check for the upgrade if you’re in Europe or the U.S. anyway.

The Android Pie update reportedly weighs in at 1.4GB, and it should bring quite a few features to the table. According to the Korean changelog, the update delivers gesture navigation, battery saving measures, a screen rotation shortcut, and the LG V40‘s cinemagraph functionality.

It’s disappointing to see LG delivering the update roughly ten months after it was first made available. In fact, we ranked LG tenth on our list of manufacturers who were quickest to issue Pie updates. It doesn’t bode well for LG G7 owners wanting Android Q, but hopefully the Korean company steps up its efforts in 2019.
