lg g7The LG G7 was released earlier this year, although unlike some other 2018 smartphones, it has yet to receive its Android 9.0 Pie update. However the good news is that LG G7 owners might not have to wait much longer because according to LG Korea (via GSMArena), it seems that the handset is set to receive its Android Pie update in the first quarter of 2019.
There were no specific dates mentioned, which means that it could be anywhere between January to March, plus we imagine that it could probably end up being pushed out region by region, and might be further delayed if you bought it from a carrier which will require additional carrier approval before the update is released, but either way it is scheduled for early next year so there’s that timeframe we can look forward to.
Like we said, there have been other handsets, such as those from LG’s competitors, who have released the update already, but better late than never, we suppose. That being said, LG is said to be working on their next flagship smartphone codenamed “Alpha”, so it possible that maybe their focus is on the handset which could explain the somewhat late release of Android Pie.
Either way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information on when the update will be released, so check back with us next year for the details.
