LG starts rolling out the stable Android 10 update for the G8 ThinQ
Early last month, LG launched an Android 10 preview for its current flagship — the LG G8 ThinQ — in South Korea. The preview allowed users to experience all of the cool new features released in Android 10 on their device and it also included a couple of additional UI changes. For instance, the Android 10 preview on the G8 ThinQ moved all of the menu tabs and pop-ups towards the bottom of the display for easier access, introduced a new intuitive card type menu, and more. Now, the company is finally rolling out a stable version of the update to the device.
As reported by GSMArena, the stable Android 10 release for the LG G8 ThinQ is now rolling out to users in South Korea. The update (software version G820N20c) not only upgrades the device to Android 10 but also bumps up the Android security patches to the November 2019 release. While we don’t have access to a detailed changelog as of now, we do know that the update includes all of the new features introduced in Android 10, including the system-wide dark mode, new navigation gestures, etc. The update also includes the aforementioned UI changes that we previously saw on the LG V50S ThinQ.
Currently, we have no information regarding a broader rollout for the update, but we expect the company to release it in other regions over the next few weeks. It’s worth noting that the company also launched the Android 10 preview for the LG V50 ThinQ last month. Since the Android 10 stable release has started rolling out for the G8 ThinQ, LG V50 ThinQ users should also get the stable update in the following weeks.
