LG G8 Android 10 Update

LG G8 Android 10 Update: Here are the security updates launched for the LG G8 handsets in the US here. In this article, we will also discuss the Android 10 update for the LG G8. Also, its launch date and the download links if available. However, you have got the LG G8 variant at T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint or AT&T, we have covered the latest updates to launch for each of these variants in a separate timeline table of its own.

LG G8 Android 10 update

LG G8 ThinQ is the company’s shameless flagship device for 2019. However, as it being part of the Android 10 beta program, currently the LG G8 is receiving the Android 20 update across all models. Also, it is the first LG device to run Android 10.

LG may also prioritize the LG V50 for Android 10 rollout first, and V40 too, probably, but the G8 is surely among the first three to get Android 10 from LG.

When will LG G8 get Android 10 update?

  • Stable build launch in South Korea
  • Also, Unlocked LG G8 (G820QM) has received the Android 10 update with software version V20a-JAN-09-2020 (Feb 1)
  • Launched for Global (G820N20c), Sprint (G820U20d), Verizon G8
  • Other models may get in Q1 2020

The LG G8 ThinQ has already received updates to Android 10. However, the company has done well to polish its betas by launching a stable package. Also, the stable version was first rolled out in Korea, then followed by European regions. In the US users are now receiving the update through major carriers in the region.

LG was a very poor performer in launching Android 9 Pie updates for its devices. Also, they took ages in launching Pie for LG G7. However, it was launched on 5th June 2019 for the European users, which is a gap of 10 months from Google’s release. That’s not only good, but it’s also unfair. The OnePlus 6/6T users also got Pie in November, and the Galaxy S9 and S9+ sets got Pie in January.

That is why we are not sure how good LG will with the G8’s Android 10 update. But given that LG G8 was part of the Android 10 beta program, also it receives beta 3 too. We hope LG can publish Android 10 sooner than later.

What’s New in Android 10?

LG doesn’t mix things around too much. However, we should see almost all of Android 10’s standout features included in the bundle. They are ready for exciting transition the features are:

  • System-wide dark theme
  • Improved Gestures Navigation
  • Better Sharing Menu
  • Live Caption
  • Notification Bubbles
  • Better Permissions management
  •  Accent Colors and Themes
  • much more
