LG K40 update: Android Pie coming to US Unlocked devices in few weeks!

Find the latest software updates for LG K40 handset here. While T-Mobile’s K40 launched with Android 9 Pie itself onboard, that wasn’t the case for most of the variants of the device. Thankfully, though the Pie update is now available in some parts of the world, including Europe, and is on the way for the US Unlocked K40 units too. Check out the timeline tables below to get more info on it.

South Korean OEM, LG, hasn’t been the most reliable when it comes to offering value for money, feature-rich smartphones. While companies like Samsung, Google, and OnePlus have been dominating the upper end of the market spectrum, manufacturers like Xiaomi and Motorola have made sure there are no free meals in the budget category.

The K40 isn’t LG’s finest product by any means, but it’s still quite a capable device in its own right. At $149.99, the April 2019 device packs quite a punch. It has a respectable 5.7-inch HD+ display, 8MP primary camera, 5MP secondary camera, 2GB of RAM, and 3000 mAh battery.

In this section, however, we’re not much concerned about the phone’s hardware capabilities and would focus primarily on software updates. From big Android OS releases to regular security updates — bookmark this page to keep yourself up to date with all the latest info about your beloved LG K40.
