LG’s software support keeps getting worse each year. From the failed attempts to deny the LG V20 an update to Android Pie to the painful delays of rolling out the software to the LG G7 ThinQ, yet nothing seems to be getting better.
Not relenting on its pursuit of doom, the Korean company is now making it even more painful for those using the LG V30, LG V30S, LG V35 ThinQ, and LG V40 ThinQ. According to an updated software release roadmap, the company now says these devices will receive Android 9 Pie in Q2 2019.
For comparison, Samsung has already updated its entire list of flagship phones from 2017 as well as a bunch of midrange phones to Android 9 Pie, yet not even every LG G7 ThinQ user has received Pie across the globe.
The fact that Android Pie will arrive on the V30, V30S, and V40 ThinQ in Q2 isn’t new. We already saw this in an earlier roadmap (image below) revealed by the company back in January 2019, but the same roadmap put the V35 ThinQ’s release date in Q1 2019, which has now changed to Q2 2019.
In case you were wondering, the release windows mentioned in this post are for the Korean market, but we can’t say the same for the global units. On the brighter side, Q2 will end on June 30th, so it’s possible that all four devices could get Pie in all regions across the globe during this window.
