Verizon LG K8 V Software Update: VS500PP9 (September 2020)

This post will give you a dedicated software update tracker for the Verizon LG K8 V smartphone. This phone was launched back in 2016. LG is still trying to keep its market afloat in the current volatile smartphone industry. When other brands are releasing new smartphones left, right, and center, LG is still not able to cope up with this pace. Though the company releases the LG Velvet series and has recently unveiled the Wing or T-shaped phone, it is yet to come in the hands of the masses.

On top of that software updates have been one of the key issues for users not opting for LG smartphones. There is no consistency in terms of software updates and there is no clear update policy by LG for its devices. Thankfully, for those who own a Verizon LG K8 V, this will be a one-stop-shop for all the latest updates released for the device. So, with that being said, let us get straight into the article itself:
