LG has never been known for its prompt Android version updates. Last year, Android 9 started rolling out to devices in August, but LG users didn’t see a public stable release until nine months later.
LG is trying to make up for its previous shortcomings this time around. Today, it is announcing the start of an Android 10 public preview program in Korea. LG plans to release the official update by the end of the year.
The company hasn’t committed to an international release date yet, but it looks like we can expect the Android 10 update to come to the West in early 2020. Until then, the first device to get the preview is LG’s G8 ThinQ, followed by the V50 ThinQ next month.
This year, LG is trying to reclaim its customers’ trust by providing faster Android 10 updates. But 2020 isn’t exactly ahead of the game for the US market. Hopefully, this is enough to convince the masses LG has turned a new leaf.
