LG V40 ThinQ is reportedly getting a new software update in India that brings VoWi-Fi support for the phone, allowing Reliance Jio and Airtel users to make use for Wi-Fi calling feature. Apart from the VoWi-Fi feature, the update also reportedly includes March 2020 Android security patch, native screen recorder, and more.
