LG isn’t a company with a good update tracking record, however, the Korean firm has shown quite some change after doing an acceptable job by updating its best smartphones to Android Oreo. After providing Google’s Cookie, the company promised to bring substantial software updates to its customers. Apparently, the LG G7 ThinQ and the LG V40 ThinQ will be the first to benefit from this new strategy.
The company’s recently established a Software Upgrade Center in order to help both flagships to receive a promotion to Android Pie. While the duo of flagships is walking in direction of Pie, LG G7 One has already landed in Pie terrain due to the use of a Pure Vanilla Android, that is easy to bring to a smartphone.
Next on line is the LG G7 ThinQ, as suggested by a public beta program that started in Korea yesterday. Regardless of their mobile carrier, owners of the South Korean LG G7 ThinQ will be able to test Pie goodies before the final release and help the company to fix any possible bug that passes from developers’ eyes. We can’t estimate when these beta programs will end, but we suppose that a stable rollout should start until the end of this year, which is something good.
After the LG G7 ThinQ, we suppose that the LG V40 ThinQ will be next in line to receive the Android Pie. Worth noting that the smartphone already appeared in some benchmarks running the latest version of Google’s software. We are yet to see what kind of exclusive features LG will bring with the latest update, but we already know that Pie will introduce a new Interface, Adaptive Battery, Digital Wellbeing, Better battery improvements and much more.
While the beta releases will remain Korea-exclusive for now, we expect to see a global rollout once that these releases reach a “stable-enough” condition.
