It has been a few months since Google released the Android 9 Pie update but it’s still not available for compatible devices of many mainstream manufacturers. Samsung has only just opened up the beta program and won’t be releasing Pie for its devices until January 2019, for example. LG has now got the ball rolling, though, as the LG G7 One is the company’s first smartphone to receive the Android 9 Pie update.
As reported by this XDA Forum user from Canada, the company has started rolling out the Android 9 Pie update for the LG G7 One. The update is said to weigh in at just over 820MB which is understandable since it’s a major Android platform update.
The changelog mentions that it improves camera functionality in addition to bumping up the core Android OS to version 9.0. It also includes the latest security patch for the month of November 2018.
The LG G7 One is the company’s Android One device. It’s guaranteed to receive swift updates by virtue of its membership of the Android One program. Those who own the device will certainly be pleased that they too can now get a taste of Pie on their devices. Android Pie brings a wide variety of new improvements to compatible devices, including but not limited to a refreshed user interface.
