LG V40 ThinQ receives Android Pie on AT&T

LG has only recently released its newest flagship, the V40 ThinQ. While the device offers some generous specs, including a Snapdragon 845, 6GB of RAM, and a triple camera setup, it sadly lacked the latest version of Android when it was launched back in October 2018.

Thus, shipments in Q1 2019 are down to 36.4 million, 18 percent less than last year's Q1 record-breaking 44.4 million. This is the steepest fall ever recorded.
