LG G7 ThinQ Maybe the Next to Receive the Update to Android Pie
LG Electronics had already alerted the users on the software updates that it plans to release for its various devices in the first quarter of the year. Of these alerts, the LG G7 ThinQ is identified to receive the software update to the Android Pie version 9.0.

There are the mandatory instructions on the update page on the LG website, including one on backing up your data on the device before the update since some errors may occur. There is also the warning that once you have upgraded to the new version, you will have no recourse to the older version, which in any case is less secure.
