LG G7 ThinQ Android Pie beta program started in South Korea

21 November 2018 4

It was earlier this year when LG announced its plans to reduce the waiting time for software upgrades and if recent developments are anything to go by, it has started to deliver on the promise. The LG G7 One was recently upgraded to the latest Android version and even the LG V40 ThinQ has been spotted online with the upgraded software. And now, LG has kicked off the LG G7 ThinQ Android Pie beta program.

The program is officially known as LG OS Preview and is currently available for all LG G7 ThinQ users from South Korea. It means if you are not from LG's homeland, you will have to wait for the time being. To access the beta build, a user needs to open the Quick Help app which comes pre-installed on the flagship. This app will show a banner titled LG OS Preview which needs to be tapped. Once a user will do this, the app will start showing on-screen instructions regarding what needs to be done next and how to download and install the newer version.

Some of the changes included in the beta build are new gestures, adaptive brightness, battery saving features, and a new way to capture screenshots. If you are thinking of running the beta build, do keep in mind there can be unexpected bugs and performance issues as it is supposed to be a slightly unstable build. Although, you can report about those issues and share feedback in app's forum to help them make the ROM better.

As mentioned in the beginning, LG is indeed working towards rolling out the latest Android version faster. This is definitely a good news for all LG users worldwide. While there is no information regarding the stable version release, we will keep you updated.

The LG G7 ThinQ is available at Amazon Marketplace for $ 448. The price/quality is very good and this is the best device in this price range. To see others 8 offers click here.
