LG G7 ThinQ gets stable Android 9 Pie update in South Korea

Peter, 17 January 2019

The LG G7 ThinQ started beta testing Android 9 Pie in November with a promise to deliver the update in Q1 2019 and it's now here. Or rather, it is there – in South Korea. LG typically releases updates in its home market first and then globally a couple of months later.

Here’s what you have to look forward to. The change log includes Pie’s gesture navigation and the battery optimization features. An LG-supplied issue is the support for dual apps, so you can use two social networking apps simultaneously.

The camera gained LG V40’s Magic Photo, which allows users to animate a part of an image. Additional changes include security enhancements like managing folder access and Wi-Fi permissions for apps and enabling SD card encryption even without a secure lockscreen (one with a PIN or password).
