T-Mobile LG V40 ThinQ now receiving its Android Pie update


LG V40 ThinQ owners, T-Mobile has a present for you as we head into the weekend.

The T-Mobile LG V40 ThinQ is now being updated to Android 9.0 Pie. As you might expect from an update to Pie, this V40 update is a biggie, coming in at 1796.3MB. It’s now rolling out over the air, and TmoNews reader Emmanuel and some folks on Reddit have already gotten it.


Neither T-Mobile nor LG have posted any changelogs for this Android Pie update yet. If it’s anything like the Verizon LG V40’s update to Pie, though, it’ll include home touch buttons with gestures like swiping up to switch to Overview and swiping right to view the most recently used app, the ability to go live with YouTube Live from the camera app, a game launcher that’ll keep your games in one place, and a Dual App feature that’ll let you use two apps simultaneously with different accounts.

LG V40 ThinQ owners who haven’t yet updated can launch the Settings app, go to the General tab, and then tap Update center > System update > Check for update to try and download Android Pie manually. Once you’ve upgraded your LG V40 to Pie, let us know what you think of the update!

Thanks, Emmanuel!

    Umm. . .and the LG G7???

    Where is the LG V30 update?????

  • Mike Smith

    How long can LG continue to lose money on their phone business? They really need someone new driving their mobile business or just give up.

    • Their phones are better than Samsung

      • SirStephenH

        So very true but the time it takes LG to release updates is negating that advantage.

  • SirStephenH

    With less than a week to go it’s looking more and more like the V30 won’t receive Pie by the end of the second quarter as promised. Whatever happened to the update center providing LG with the ability to release timely updates?

    • It’s not LG, it’s the carriers

        It seems like the carriers aren’t taking the blame, and the Korean “software update” reps are saying the delays are because of LG (as usual).

    The new update, after a reboot, mounts, then unmounts the SD card after about 2 minutes. You’ll then have to manually mount the SD card to see the apps. There is no way to roll-back to older version, it seems. TMO Customer (don’t) Care blames LG, but the OS is customized by TMO.

    “Reset the phone and try again” was their answer…
