The LG G7 ThinQ is billed to start receiving the Android 10 update in South Korea sometime this quarter. There appears to be some good news for owners of the flagship in the US, however.

LG has a rather awful reputation with software updates but appears to be slowly improving in that department. The company sent out the Android 10 update to the LG G8 ThinQ months ago, only a few weeks ago after the Samsung Galaxy S10 phones received the update. The LG G7 ThinQ seems to be next in line.

The LG G7 ThinQ was released in 2018 and ran Android Oreo at launch. The phone has since received the Android Pie update, and is eligible for one more update: Android 10. That update could be coming even sooner than expected.

The LG G7 ThinQ is officially scheduled to get the Android 10 update in Q2, at least in LG's home South Korea. However, the company has now published the Android 10 kernel sources for the LMG710TM and LMG710VM, the T-Mobile and Verizon models of the phone, to be exact.

While this doesn't tell us exactly when the G7 ThinQ will receive the Android 10 update in the US, it's proof that the base firmware is already available. We'd be surprised if the G7 ThinQ doesn't get the update before July or thereabouts.
