LG V40 Android Pie Updates and Much More

This page is basically to keep a track of all software updates for the V40 ThinQ. We actually have covered updates not only for the global variant. However, also separately for each and every one of the major carriers in the US: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon as well. We also discuss LG V40’s Android 10 update as well as its tentative release date. In this article, we are going to talk about LG V40 Android Pie Updates and Much More. Let’s begin!

LG V40 Android Pie Updates and Much More

New features | Updates

Well, a new update for LG V40, coming in as software version V20d, is also now available in India. V20d basically brings some goodies along, such as a Screen recorder, Wi-Fi calling, Digital Wellbeing, and new Status bar icons for these services actually.

However, the update is yet to become available in Europe and many other parts of the world. That also includes in the US. There the users AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon will have to wait a bit longer for the update as well. If you guys want a date, then the next month could be your best too.

Will LG V40 get Android 11?

We are really sad to break it to you but the LG GV40 won’t get an Android 11 update.

The company basically launched the V40 with Android 8.0 Oreo on-board. Hence with Android 10, its 2 major updates will be over. Well, LG’s track record is not exactly impressive now, because they are yet to release Android 10 for the V40. And it actually took a really long time to come out with Android 9 Pie too. Even if they promised Android 11, we can’t really bet against most V40 users parting along with their phone by the time LG released it actually.

Will LG V40 get Android 10?

Well, LG V40 was one of the most underrated phones of 2018. It’s now been over a year since its launch, however, it is still an excellent smartphone to own, giving good value for your money.

The phone basically came with Android Oreo out of the box and was updated to Android Pie in June 2019. LG mostly grants its V-series devices two major Android OS upgrades, and we actually expect V40 in order to get the same treatment.

When Android 10 for LG V40 will come out?

  • May 19: The android 10 is now also available for T-Mobile V40 users!
  • May 14: The android 10 update is finally available for LG V40 at AT&T (version V405UA30b)
  • Many other carriers in the US should get the update soon

AT&T surprised us for good through becoming not only the first carrier in the US. However, also beating the global V40 sets to release the Android 10 update actually.
