Android 10 is the tenth major release and the 17th version of the Android mobile operating system. It was released on September 3, 2019. Android is a mobile operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software, designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android is developed by a consortium of developers known as the Open Handset Alliance, with the main contributor and commercial marketer being Google.
LG started rolling out the update to Android 10 for the G8 ThinQ in South Korea last November, and now the new software has finally arrived in the US as well.
It’s currently heading out to G8 units purchased from both Sprint and Verizon. The former carrier actually started the rollout earlier this month, while Big Red followed today.
Verizon’s version of the update is G820UM20a, and it includes the December 2019 security patch level. There are additional goodies tacked on top by LG, make sure you visit the first source linked below for the full changelog.
As always, these rollouts are likely to be staged, so don’t fret if you haven’t yet received an update notification, it should arrive within the next few days. If you’re impatient, you can always try to manually check for the update through your phone’s Settings menu. That may or may not get you ahead in line, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
