Update: December 2, 2019 (02:55 PM ET): LG promised faster updates for its devices and it looks like it might actually follow through on that promise. We have news (via GSM Arena) that an LG G8 ThinQ update is rolling out now to South Korean handsets, and that update brings along Android 10 with it.
Android 10 rolled out in beta to South Korean handsets not long ago, so it makes sense that we’re seeing a stable launch now. The update comes with software version G820N20C and also includes the November 2019 Android security patch.
There’s no word yet on when the rest of the world will see this LG G8 ThinQ update, but it shouldn’t be long now (hopefully).
Welcome to the LG G8 ThinQ updates hub. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest Android updates for the device, including the current version and when future updates are likely to arrive.
LG doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to Android updates. However, the company has promised that it will do better going forward, and evidence suggests that it will keep that promise when it comes to LG G8 ThinQ updates (at least so far).
Take note that the LG G8 ThinQ updates don’t land on all devices in all countries on all carriers at the same time. Therefore, it may be a while before you see an update, even if LG formally launches it.
LG G8 ThinQ updates
- Current stable version: Android 10
- When will the LG G8 ThinQ get Android 10? Stable update available now in certain markets
The LG G8 ThinQ launched on February 24, 2019, with the then-latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie.
In early December 2019, LG started pushing out Android 10 to the LG G8 ThinQ but only in its native South Korea. Android 10 will start pushing out globally very soon.
The new skin over Android 10 looks a lot like Samsung’s One UI 2.0. You can see some screenshots of the new skin here.
