After getting delayed beyond the Q1 2019 release, LG is finally rolling out an Android 9 Pie update to the users of its LG G7 ThinQ. The update was earlier rolled to out to users of the G7 ThinQ in South Korea and it took the company five months to roll out a similar update to users globally. 

 

Several users on Reddit have now started posting that their LG G7 ThinQ is now getting an update to Android 9 Pie. Keeping in mind that these users hail from Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, and the UK, we can expect that this is a mass rollout and will release to LG G7 ThinQ units in India as well, though it might be a while till all units receive the latest firmware update.
