LG G7 ThinQ Android Pie Beta update launches in South Korea with globally expected soon

LG opened its LG OS preview for LG G7 thinQ users in the brand's home region of South Korea which could signal that the phone maker is gearing up to push the Android Pie update in the coming weeks note that this update is different from the PI update that rolled out on the Android one edition of the phone which don'ts it have LG branded software LG wasn't ever the best at providing quick updates for major Android releases today's news does show that LG is acting a bit quicker to update its previous devices by contrast last year it took until the very end of December for LG to start testing and Oreo update for the LG g6 before a beta was even available to users users in Korea can sign up for the preview by going into the quick help app and finding the LG OS preview banner new changes include a new gesture home button new battery saving feature new adaptive brightness will learn your preferred brightness setting there's also a new preview when you take a screenshot and you can press and hold the power button to lock the phone LG hasn't offered a beta program like this in the US so we probably won't see Pie on the g7 until the final firmware is complete we expect that LG is going to release the final Pie update sometime later in December or early next year hopefully we will get to see a change log in English before then
