[Cont. updated] LG’s upcoming software updates tracker

lg g7 thinq featured

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on October 9, 2020) follows:

Google released Android 11 last month and several OEMs have provided the latest OS update to their devices as beta and stable versions but LG is not among them.

LG has been a bit slow with software updates as the OEM is still providing the year-old Android 10 update to its devices.


To recall, LG shared a software update schedule for LG G8s ThinQ, LG V40 ThinQ, and LG G7 ThinQ back in September.

Now, another software update schedule along with the list of devices has been shared by LG for the fourth quarter of 2020.

This time, the update schedule includes a bunch of devices including LG V50S, LG Q70, and LG X6 (2019) that will get performance updates.

Also, the OEM has shared details of the September security patch and a list of eligible devices that will receive a bunch of new features.

The devices include LG Wing, LG Velvet, LG V50S ThinQ, LG X4 (2019), LG V50 ThinQ, LG G8 ThinQ, LG Q9, LG V40 ThinQ, LG Q8 (2018), LG Q61, and LG G7 ThinQ.

These devices are slated to get new updates along with new features in the near future, although some might be receiving the updates already.

LG has released the Android 10 update for most of its devices but the OEM has been very slow with the OS update.

It must be noted that the LG G8s ThinQ Android 10 update was supposed to roll out from October 08 in India but there is still no sign of the OS update.

Today, LG started rolling out the Android 10 update to LG G8X ThinQ units in South Africa months after other regional variants of the device had received the same.

Hopefully, LG strives to deliver faster updates to its eligible devices considering many OEMs are way ahead in the game.
