LG smartphones are slowly but surely becoming a lost cause. The company has recently launched a series of new devices, but not only these seem to excite neither the smartphone users or the tech industry.
Even so, LG released a new design with its LG G8X ThinQ, which packs a dual-screen with a twist. The handset cannot offer a continuous dual screen, but two separate screens, which come at an identical size as the primary display.
The secondary display sports a USB-C port, and the hinge that connects the screens makes the device usable as a tablet, which is impressive.
When it comes to providing security and firmware updates, LG has repeatedly failed to offer some relevant updates. The majority of its devices are yet to implement the latest security update.
Moreover, what might seem surprising it the fact that a not-so-old release, the Android 9 Pie update, is now accessible for two LG smartphones: the LG Stylo 4 and LG Q7 Plus. Let’s detail a bit on the update arrival for each device.
The Mediocre LG Stylo 4 Receives Android 9 Pie
The LG Stylo 4 was released back in 2018. It comes as an average device featuring 2GB of RAM and a stylus pen. The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 420 chipset and sports a 3,000mAh battery.
The update to Android 9 Pie is currently accessible for LG Stylo 4 on Spectrum Mobile and also on Xfinity Mobile. It is expected to arrive soon for other vectors in the U.S. Spectrum Mobile update is numbered Q710ULS20A, while Xfinity Mobile’s update version carries the number Q710US20B.
An Upgrade for the LG Q7 Plus
The second LG device that received the Android 9 Pie is the LG Q7 Plus. The update is currently accessible for users on T-Mobile and Metro by the T-Mobile network. We should note that the upgrade has already made the rounds for the device in South Korea, but a global follow up is expected to happen quite soon.
The update is available for LG Q7 Plus models carrying the numbers LMQ610TAL and MQ610MA. In addition, it comes with the version number Q610TA20A and packs the September 2019 security patch.
The Android 9 Pie update is rolling out via OTA (over-the-air), and will probably take a while to reach each and every LG Q7 Plus smartphone.
