Official Android Pie update spreads to US unlocked LG V35 ThinQ (among other variants)
The LG V35 ThinQ is quite possibly the most interesting high-end smartphone released in 2018 that you can buy at a massive discount right now, and thanks to a long overdue software update, the no-notch 6-incher feels even harder to resist for professional bargain hunters.

Following the AT&T-locked variant, which was the only one available from a major US wireless service provider, essentially all other models are receiving their over-the-air Pie serving as we speak, according to the folks from MyLGPhones and a number of joyous Redditors. We're talking US unlocked V35 units, as well as those sold through Google Fi back in the day and the Amazon Prime Exclusive edition that's still up for grabs at $500 (marked down from $900).

If you're in possession of one of these Snapdragon 845-powered handsets or considering buying one, you should expect the Android 9.0 Pie goodie pack to come at any minute and improve everything from system stability to overall performance, security, battery life, and intuitive navigation. As far as security goes, it seems the update is rolling out alongside June patches, which isn't exactly ideal but it's surely a major improvement over what the LG V35 ThinQ has going on at the moment.

Speaking of, you may want to think about snapping up this bad boy from Cricket Wireless or a trusted eBay seller, as the aforementioned state-of-the-art processor (from last year) is combined with 6GB RAM, a beautiful P-OLED screen, versatile dual 16MP rear camera setup, and decent 3,300mAh battery for a pretty much unrivaled sub-$400 spec sheet.

Good to see. If LG can improve at all in the update cycles they can improve their competiveness.
