LG started rolling out Android 9 Pie to the G7 ThinQ in Korea in January 2019 and subsequently released a roadmap, giving us details of when to expect Pie on the LG G6.

Apparently, users of the G6 will have to wait until Q3 2019 to get a taste of Pie, a period ending September 30. It’s not a surprise at all considering that LG G5 made the switch to Android Oreo, the second major OS upgrade, in September 2018.

The LG G6 would get an update to Android Pie for sure. Which is good news! But will you be still using it by the time Android 9 starts rolling out for the LG G6?
