Well, until Verizon makes any official communication, the best you can expect on your LG Zone 4 handset is Android security patches, so make sure you grab the latest version the moment it shows up.
If it hasn’t already, don’t fret. OTA updates usually take days before every unit gets the download notification. While you can simply sit back and wait for it, there’s also the option to try and force the update via the Settings menu, but this doesn’t always work.
Will LG Zone 4 get Android 10 update?
Well, nope. The device runs on Android 7.1.2 and didn’t even receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, let alone Android 9 Pie. Surely then, there is no chance it will live to see a day in Android 10.

Android 8.0 Oreo and Android 9 Pie
Status: Neither Oreo (Android 8.0 and 8.1) nor Pie (Android 9) is expected
As pointed out, it took us by surprise when the LG Zone 4 came preinstalled with Android 7.1.2 Nougat the same time Android Pie was announced. This in itself shows a lack of commitment from both parties, which should scare anyone concerned about software updates when going for Zone 4. With this in mind, we don’t think Zone 4 will go past Nougat unless Verizon and LG have a surprise in the works, which we won’t mind!
On the brighter side, the duo has started off well with monthly security patches, which we’ve highlighted below. This table will also be updated regularly with all software updates released to the LG Zone 4.
