LG G8X ThinQ gets Android 10 update in India
LG has taken over a year to release the version for the device, almost at a time when Android 11 is set to come out.
LG G8x ThinQ users in India are finally getting the Android 10 update. The company has released the version for the device in the country, more than a year since it was announced. The G8x ThinQ is one of the select LG devices to get this version. And the company has shared a detailed update timeline for its other devices. You might say that Android 11 is just around the corner. So what is the point of releasing a year-old software now? Either ways, we are pretty sure the user won't mind getting it. After all, they finally get to experience the dark mode feature of the OS.
In addition to that, Android 10 offers features like Digital Wellbeing, Night Mode, and Pop-up screen among others. The update is available via the LG UX 9.0 version and is rolling out over the air (OTA). We don't know the exact size of the update but it's likely to be over a GB. You can head over to Settings on the phone and check for a new software update alert. Make sure you have enough battery for the version to download and install via Wi-Fi. LG G8x ThinQ launched in India last year for Rs 54,999.
