[Update: Now on AT&T] The LG V35 ThinQ’s Android Pie update rolls out in Korea

Update (6/19/19 @ 3:15 PM ET): The LG V35 is now finally getting Android Pie in the US starting with AT&T.

LG Electronics’ smartphone division has been under suffered major losses consecutively for the past 15 quarters and even its new boss couldn’t drag the business out of deficits. This has caused the company to stop selling devices in key markets like China. Perhaps, due to this sluggish performance, LG has been several months late in releasing the latest version of Android available to its smartphones but, it began the month with some positive news for its users and promised Android 9.0 Pie updates to three of its flagship smartphones. The Pie updates for the LG V30/V30S ThinQ, the LG V35 ThinQ, and the LG V40 ThinQ were scheduled to arrive in Q2 and while LG did not share a more specific timeline, one of these devices is already getting the update in Korea.

According to My LG Phones, the LG V35 ThinQ is receiving an update to Android 9.0 Pie in Korea. While the update is available as an OTA, it can also be installed via LG Bridge software. The update is available to three variants of the LG V35 ThinQ, including the carrier unlocked 256GB variant as well as the carrier-locked models running on LG Uplus and KT Freetel.

The latest update for LG V35 ThinQ comes almost four weeks after LG concluded the beta testing for the update in Korea. Additionally, since it recently finished beta-testing Android 9.0 Pie for LG V35 models in the U.S., we could expect the update to not take more than a month.

Meanwhile, there is no information on updates for other devices such as LG V40, LG V30/V30S, which are also expected to receive the update by the end of this quarter.

If you’re on KTF and do not wish to wait for the OTA update, you can download the update package and flash it manually. Alternatively, you can search for a suitable firmware package for other variants of the LG V35 ThinQ using this link.
