LG is one of the slowest OEMs at releasing software updates but this time around, it has at least started relatively faster. The LG G8 ThinQ has started receiving the Android 10 update in South Korea. As shared by GSMArena, there are a couple of screenshots showing the device running the latest Android version.
These screenshots have been shared by a South Korean user named Jerry Cheung. One of them shows that the device bears model number LM-G820N and has firmware version number G820N20c. It also shows that the core Android version is Android 10 i.e. the newest available Android version. Another good thing is that the update brings November 2019 Android security patch.
The exact changelog for the LG G8 ThinQ Android 10 update is currently unknown but we can expect it to bring at least all major Android 10 features. The most talked-about features are undoubtedly the system-wide dark mode and navigation gestures. It could be the new LG UX 9.0 that was showcased recently. We should get a better idea of new features and changes once the update becomes widely available.
LG had announced the Android 10 beta program in October and as per the announcement, the next device in line is the LG V50 ThinQ. It should be noted that this plan is only for South Korea with no words on expansion to global markets yet. We will be sharing more details as and when these will be made public.
