LG has not exactly been an example in terms of the speed to make software updates available for its smartphones.
Currently, few models of the manufacturer have been contemplated with Android 9 Pie – LG G7 ThinQ, LG G7 One, and LG V40 ThinQ – although Android Q ( already in its fifth test version ) is already close to winning its final version.
However, the next top line from South Korea to receive the ninth version of the Robinho Verde will be no less than the LG G6, the top of the line announced in early 2017, which hit the market with Android 7 Nougat factory pre-installed.
Currently, the model has Android 8 as the operating system, and the upgrade to the Pie is scheduled to happen by the end of the third quarter of the year – that is, until the end of September.
With so little time left before the release deadline, of course, the operating system is already being tested internally, and it looks like a test version of it just leaked on the web.
Shared by the @backyrun user in the Telegram, the leaked compilation is intended for the European flagship model (H870).
As we can see from the screenshots shared above, the PKQ1.190421.001 firmware has the Android security package for the month of May 2019.
By all indications, the platform presents stable performance for a system that has not even been released yet, without notable bugs or failures.
It brings, of course, all the news presented in Android 9 Pie, including two-button navigation gestures; in addition, we also have the presence of a redesigned screen recording app and dual apps feature.
To install the compilation in question in the LG G6, it is necessary, first of all, to have the European version of the notebook, with model code H870; in addition, the model must be running Android 8.0 Oreo.

Those who have unlocked the bootloader can do the installation through the TWRP; those still holding the factory lock can use the LGUP software to perform the procedure.
