LG's software team is currently busy working on the Android 10 update for eligible devices. A beta program is already available and the stable version is expected to arrive on the LG G8 ThinQ by the end of this year. There is still some time for that but LG has released a YouTube video showcasing what to expect.
The new version is named LG UX 9.0 which looks a lot more streamlined than the previous iteration. It means you will find it a lot more intuitive which is something LG fans used to miss. In the first glimpse, it is likely to remind you of Samsung's One UI if you have seen that on any of the modern Samsung phones. This is not surprising as LG is known to take inspiration from its Android counterparts when it comes to designing software UI.
The all-new LG UX 9.0 features system-wide dark mode which has started to become mainstream among Android apps as well as custom skins. All the system apps like Dialer, Contacts, Calendar, and Clock have been redesigned. These come with a new user interface that looks easier to navigate as well as to find the information you are looking for.
An exact release date for revamped LG UX 9.0 is currently unknown. Even the complete of eligible devices for this update has not been announced yet. The video does suggest that it is undoubtedly the most interesting LG UI in a very long time. As and when LG will reveal any new details, we will make sure to keep you updated.
