According to a post on the Korean version of the LG website, Android 9 Pie will land on the South Korean version of the LG G7 ThinQ in the first quarter of 2019.
Usually, LG updates its devices in its home country first and then rolls out the update to other countries a few months later. By using this story as a box, there is a sure bet that the cake will land on the LG G7 ThinQ at some point in the first half of 2019.
Or hey, maybe not. Maybe it's going to be sooner or later than that.
Unlike other manufacturers who have given at least some concrete timelines for deploying Pie to their Android devices, LG's case report is very vague. However, the company calls out a beta of Android 9 Pie to its South Korean G7 Thinq phones in November, so perhaps the stable rollout will happen before we expect.
Earlier in 2018, LG promised to build a new division with the sole purpose of pushing faster Android updates to their phones. However, we haven't heard much about this new update center since then. Based on the fact that Android 9 Pie has been stable since August 2018, it seems that the update center is not yet running.
If you have a LG G7 ThinQ, you get Android 9 Pie on any point.
