Verizon is the first US carrier to update the LG V40 ThinQ to Android 9.0 Pie
Despite the fact that T-Mobile teased the upcoming release of the LG V40 ThinQ Android 9.0 Pie update about two weeks ago, Verizon is actually the first US carrier to offer the update to its customers.

The announcement published on Verizon's website mentions that the Android 9.0 Pie update is rolling out to LG V40 ThinQ units since May 24. It contains the April security patch and some other nifty new features, including home screen lock, game launch, pin to screen option, brief notifications, Cine Shot and YouTube Live.

It's true that the update comes a bit later than anyone would have expected, but LG seems to have issues keeping up with the Android OS updates Google releases every year. Oh well, as the saying goes, better late than never.

Now, if you own a Verizon LG V40 ThinQ, we do recommend downloading the update via Wi-Fi due to its size. Also, make sure that your phone's battery is at least 50% charged and that you have enough storage available before you attempt to install it.
