LG‘s G7 ThinQ is the latest smartphone to soon receive the new Android 9 Pie update. The company has started registrations to allow participants for the Android Preview program that allows them to beta test the upcoming update.
This is the second smartphone from the South Korean company to receive the Android Pie update. Recently, the company started pushing the latest Android Pie update to the LG G7 One devices in Canada.
While the Android Preview program is now available to the LG G7 ThinQ users for testing the Android Pie update, it is currently limited to those in Korea only. To join the program, you’ll need to launch the “Quick Help” application and then click on the “LG OS Preview Guide” banner. Once done, you’ll then receive the Android 9 Pie beta update shortly.
The company has also opened a bulletin board where the participants can report the bugs or any future suggestions. LG says that it will try to incorporate those opinions into the official stable OS update. The Android Preview program suggests that the stable Android Pie update is not far away.
