A few years ago LG was one of the dominant companies in the smartphone market. Back in the days of LG G2, the company was fighting to keep its position against the likes of Apple and Xiaomi. However, the South-Korean firm failed with subsequent releases and lost space to competition, especially the one coming from China. Now, the company has a small slice of the smartphone market with flagships that failed to impress in the past two years. To make things worse, the company doesn’t have a good update track record, but it’s working to improve. This year, LG Android 10 update already reached two smartphones – The LG G8 ThinQ and Korean units of V50 ThinQ 5G.

LG Android 10 update comes in the form of LG UX 9.0 and brings several new features and refreshed design. Moreover, there’s a brand new Desktop Mode that expands the experience if you connect your handset to an external display. Since the last year, fans and owners of LG devices have been waiting for an official roadmap pointing when they could expect Android 10 for their handsets. Now, the Italian branch of LG has shared the company’s plans to bring Android 10 with UX 9.0 to nine devices in 2020.
The list of eligible devices includes the LG V40 ThinQ, International units of V50 ThinQ, G8X ThinQ, G8S ThinQ, G7 ThinQ, K50S, K40S, K50 and Q60. You can check the complete roadmap with the expected release period below:
LG Android 10 update roadmap:
- February 2020
- International LG V50 ThinQ
- Q2 2020
- LG G8X
- Q3 2020
- LG G7, G8S and V40
- Q4 2020
- LG K50S, K40S, K50 and Q60
As you can see, some devices in the entry-level range will get Android 10 in the final months of 2020. We have to say that it will be too late. After all, Android 11 will be around with many companies working on it. Thus, LG phones will always be a year behind the current Android version.
Hi. I’m Bruce and just enrolled in this group. All the phones that I’ve used in the last 4 years have been LG’s: K-10
(K-425); V-35(my Favorite); and my newest, G8. While I don’t use all the features of any Android update, I’m eagerly awaiting the Newest update.
LG Phones ROCK!
RIP KOBE BRYANT.
I’m an owner of a LG V40 at&t version I would like to know if this version as well will get it. If it OMG best phone ever
Will this be available for the BlackBerry Key2 ?
Switched to LG from a well known fruit brand 3 years back with a G6, and now have a G7. Better displays and battery longevity, never slow down (no PO!), higher build quality, web browsing never crashes. They are superior phones!
Happy that LG will up their release rate but have to say I haven’t been disappointed so far.
I’m on my 3rd lg phone. Now have a lg thin q8. Love it the speed thie pictures etc this phone stands up against I phones and Samsung people should do there research it’s also less money
I have the lg g7 one and we have received the android 10 update.
