The LG V40 ThinQ has been upgraded to Android 10 in at least seven new countries. At least devices in Germany, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK have started receiving LG UX 9.0 following equivalent rollouts for US carrier-locked devices earlier this year. Reports of the V40 ThinQ receiving Android 10 in India are false, though.

It has been over three months since Android 10 first arrived on the V40 ThinQ, albeit just the AT&T edition of the device. Subsequently. T-Mobile and Verizon also pushed LG UX 9.0 to the V40 ThinQ, but unlocked handsets remained cut adrift on Android 9.0 Pie. Thankfully, LG has finally gotten around to bringing Android 10 to more regions.

According to LG-Firmwares and the r/lgv40 subreddit, LG has released UX 9.0 to the V40 ThinQ in Germany, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the UK. From what we can tell, all regions have received an update called V405EBW30b_00_OPEN_EU_DS_OP_0806. The update should be rolling out as an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade, but it may be eligible to download on LG Bridge too. LG may have started rolling out Android 10 for the V40 ThinQ in more countries, but we cannot confirm that this is the case.

Piunikaweb also reported that the Indian version of the V40 ThinQ had received Android 10, too. The website based this claim on a post to r/lgv40, but this turned out to be incorrect. Instead, the Indian variant has received another Android 9.0 Pie build called V405EBW20f_00_OPEN_ESA_DS_OP_0729. The update brings the July 2020 set of security patches to the device, but not Android 10.
