LG confirms Android 10 update for nine smartphones

LG confirms Android 10 update for nine smartphones
The only LG smartphone that's been updated to Android 10 is the G8 ThinQ, but that's about to change very soon. The South Korean company has just confirmed that at least nine smartphones will be updated to Android 10 in the coming months.

The information comes from LG Italy, so it should be accurate, though availability will depend on country and carrier. With that in mind, here are all the smartphones that will receive Android 10 updates in the coming months: LG V40, LG V50, LG G8X, LG G8S, LG G7, LG K50S, LG K40S, LG K50, and LG Q60.

The first phone to receive the update will be the LG V50, so expect to get Android 10 in early February. Next, the LG G8X ThinQ will be updated to Android 10 during the second quarter of 2020. The LG G7, LG G8S, and LG V40 will get the update in Q3, while the rest of the phones listed above won't receive it until Q4 2020.

Apart from all the new features and improvements included in Android 10, the update will also implement the new LG UX 9.0, which completely revamps the way the phone's UI looks, making it more pleasant and easy to use.

What LG really means by "Second quarter of 2020" is late second quarter or most likely third quarter.

Smh and this is why LG has no respect from me. There's no reason why Android 10 should take that long to roll out to devices that are more than capable of handling it. Unacceptable.

F*** LG! I bought my V35 over the G7 because I didn't want the notch, but figured it would at least have the same update life cycle, since both phones came out at the same time. As far as Android goes - I've been buying LG flagships exclusively since the original Optimus G in 2012. If LG doesn't add the V35 to that list, I'm done for real and never coming back.

Gads, Q3 for my V40. I still love my phone though. I doubt I'll upgrade until the V70 because of the non-integrated 5G issue with the 865. My V40 is plenty fast for now, but I'd like a much bigger battery and 5G.

And the V35 looks like it's getting screwed. That'll be the last LG phone I buy my wife.

I sold my v35 a few days ago for this very reason. Bought an iPhone XR for a Steal that was just 2 weeks old.

Q3 is a long time to wait, but I'll take solace in my G7 having gotten 9 fairly quickly. At least in terms of LG's glacial pace.
