LG V20 Pie update news and more: Android Oreo available at T-Mobile; AT&T rolls out September patch

lg v20 update

The LG V20 has been around since 2016, but the flagship phone is still eligible for at least one more major OS upgrade. The device came pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat, going down in history as the first to launch with Nougat out of the box, even ahead of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

On this page, we have all the details you’d want to know regarding LG V20 software updates, major or minor, alongside their respective changelogs and release dates as well.

Android 9 update: Expected in Q3 2019

Since Oreo will be the first major OS upgrade for the LG V20, we also expect it to be upgraded to Android Pie somewhere in Q3 2019. If interested in getting to know more about new Android Pie features and when your device will receive the update, well, we’ve got your back:

Despite being the first to debut with Nougat out of the box, the LG V20 has been stagnant on Android Nougat for over two years, but finally, the device made the switch to Android 8.0 Oreo beginning late July 2018. Three weeks later, the update arrived in the U.S. courtesy of AT&T and more carriers should update the device soon.

LG is not alone in the quest to upgrade its devices to Android Oreo, but other OEMs are pushing ahead with the same agenda too. Check out some of them below:
