At a Q4 2019 software upgrade roadmap for the Korean marketplace revealed some time ago, LG did affirm that Android 10 is coming into the LG G8 ThinQ before the year ends.
This was following the G8’s Android Q beta testing program had started, which intended LG was speaking about the steady release of Android 10.
But — as you’d expect — there wasn’t any mention of a particular date when the upgrade would be anticipated in markets outside Korea, but we are starting to see some positive signals in this aspect.
Based on MyLGPhones, the Korean firm has started beta-testing that the LG G8 Android 10 upgrade in the U.S. Here, the unit is sold through different carriers, but just the carrier-unlocked and Amazon versions are getting involved in the beta program.
The newest Android 10 firmware has applications version V18b for the U.S. unlocked and Amazon versions of this LG G8, but the former is coming out of applications version V10i while the latter will be coming from V11j, which appears to be the version that attracts the newest October security limitation.
To acquire the LG G8 Android 10 beta upgrade in your Amazon version, you will have to catch the incoming October security upgrade. It weighs in at 266MB, which implies it’s more than only a normal security upgrade.
The details surrounding ways to have the LG G8 Android 10 beta upgrade are still hazy, but we’ll be keeping your eye on the developments and let you learn about it once we’ve got them. However, naturally, be cautioned that this is beta software which is not fit to be used as a daily driver.
We’ll allow you to know if the OS starts rolling out.
