Unlocked LG V40 ThinQ gets Android 9 Pie update

When the LG V40 ThinQ was first released in October, it was intended to rival Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 model. Unfortunately, it was unable to compare to the latter since it had a smaller battery and less powerful triple-rear camera configuration. Another factor that led to the LG V40 ThinQ’s decline is the fact that it took LG a long time to get the official Android 9.0 Pie update. Now, that looks like it’s about to change.

After initially rolling out an Android Pie update for Verizon, AT&T, and U.S. Cellular, unlocked versions of the LG V40 ThinQ now get their share of the action.

Earlier today, the V40520A_03 firmware build has been released along with the May security patch. The new firmware update has a size of 3.92GB.

Once updated to Android 9 Pie, users can enjoy all the standard Pie features on the LG V40 ThinQ– gesture navigation and dual app support. The update also gives some refinements to the camera app.

The other features included in the update improve the device’s stability and performance. If you are an LG V40 ThinQ user, you can download the Bridge desktop client to see if the new update is available for your device.
