The first U.S carrier to provide the long-awaited Android 9 Pie was Verizon and it the company rolled out the software to the LG V40 ThinQ. The company triggered a movement, because after that AT&T was next and the U.S Cellular as well, but the last ones, Sprint and T-Mobile are coming from behind as well.
However, one of the two companies mentioned above is taking some significant steps, and T-Mobile is bringing Android 9 Pie to the LG V40 ThinQ. The V40 devices sold by the U.S carrier will start to receive the update notification. The changelog detail is not available on T-Mobile’s support website, only a short description that says various bug fixes, and security and system improvements.
Yet, some LG V40 ThinQ owners are confirming on XDA Forum that they downloaded and installed the update successfully on their phones. The update is 1.8 GB in size, so you better have additional space on your device and enough bandwidth for downloading it. Even if the update is quite more substantial for the Android 9 Pie, we don’t know if the user experience will be so different after you install it. But that doesn’t mean the update is not something we shouldn’t look forward too.
Finally, it is possible that the update is rolling out in stages, so if you are very impatiently to have it, you can search for it from a safe source and do it manually. Just go in Settings update in your phone and try this method. Besides this, LG is starting to deliver Android 9 Pie update in the U.S for the V35 ThinQ, but it’s available only at AT&T. The V30 is not forgotten, because the device will receive an update as well, but no further ETA is available yet.
